Poetry Pantry #221


Annell's Photos --  Fall Comes to Cimarron Canyon, 
New Mexico, USA











Greetings, Poets!

Glad to see each of you here this week for Poetry Pantry.  It is always enjoyable for me to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same.  Admittedly, I personally appreciate those with whom there is a feeling of reciprocity, which makes for a feeling of community.  I think we ALL tend to visit (after a while) people with whom we reciprocate.  I just don't GET people who link and enjoy visits, yet don't bother to visit others -- even those who spent time making comments on their poetry.

This week I am sharing some photos that Annell sent.  Fall certainly is a beautiful season everywhere, and looks especially beautiful in Cimarron Canyon, New Mexico.  If anyone else has seasonal photos from their area or interesting photos from somewhere you live or have visited, I'd like to feature them!  Let me know.

Be sure to visit Poets United Monday to see what Sherry Blue Sky  has planned to share.  Will it be a featured poet?  A featured blog?  Or a featured poem?

Glad to see there is always a  great turn-out for Midweek Motif.  We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast!  (And, ha, perhaps many of you have noticed that if you look at one week's prompt Susan gives  a clue about the following week's prompt as well, so you can get a head start.)

And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or  "The Living Dead."

Again:  I issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry.  If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, let me know what kind of photos you have.  There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries.  I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited.  Send inquiries first to dixibear@aol.com letting me know what you have.  I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.

Link your ONE poem.   Then leave a comment below. Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  (If I miss your poem, visit me, and I will visit you... I am like anyone else, appreciating reciprocity.) We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others.  That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.

Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new.  Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends!  Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?

If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site.  It is one more way to stay in touch!

And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here:  Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.

  15. I have not been writing much lately, not been writing to prompts elsewhere. Between the Jewish and Pagan and Quaker events lately, I have been so busy! But I am happy to be feeling the faith and nearly capturing it in words. Always just nearly, which makes for another and and another try--lots of poems. Love!

    I'll be reading every single poem above as way opens. A few now, a few after Meeting and celebrating World Quaker Day, and a few during the magical twilight hours.

    1. Wow, Susan, you have a lot of religious things going on, thus I am not surprised that you are so busy. I do wonder how Jewish and Pagan and Quaker all work together for you.

  18. We have a well-stocked Pantry this Sunday. Yay - getting ready to dive in. Annell, I love the photos. Those canyon walls are intriguing. Though you have more trees than the Okanagan on your slopes, the topography reminds me a bit of the desert area in the Okanagan.
