Poetry Pantry #242


Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA Botanical Gardens
Photos by Patti Wolf
















Greetings, Poets!  Well, today begins Daylight Saving Time (Summer Time) in the USA.  I guess that means our weather will be improving soon.  Smiles.  I know that some other areas of the world begin summer time later on.  I would guess some places don't have summer time at all.  If you are outside of the USA, when do you begin summer time?  Or do you?

Today we have a second series of photos by Patti Wolf.  Thank you, Patti.  Love those flower pics.  I hope some other poets will have photos to share.  I have one more group from Patti, and then I hope to have some other volunteers step forward.  Don't be shy!

This past Wednesday Susan had a wonderful prompt at Midweek Motif:  A Woman's Day in honor of International Women's Day, which is celebrated today worldwide.  If you have a poem in honor of a woman / women today, the pantry would be a great place to share it.  Or, if you want to link the poem you wrote for Susan's prompt, feel free as well.  And...guess what....next week Susan is having us write about "A Man's Day."  So you can start planning ahead!  Smiles.

I hope everyone had a chance to read and comment on Rosemary's The Living Dead this week.  If you haven't read the article yet on "Always the First Time" by Andre Breton, the founder of Surrealism,  please take a look.  Rosemary puts a lot of time and effort into bringing us these wonderful articles each week.  A small comment letting her know that you've read can really make all the difference in the world.

Did you all see Sherry Blue Sky's article on Ollie, the Tired Monk, last Monday?  Ollie has been a regular here in Poetry Pantry for a while now.  Thanks, Ollie.  I hope if you haven't read the article introducing Ollie (again) you will take some time  to read it today & say 'hi' to Ollie over there!  Sherry will be featuring another regular Poetry Pantry participant this Monday.  He has never been featured by Sherry before.  He is relatively new, but very active.  No more clues.  Check back.  Smiles.

Well, time to share poetry!  Link one poem.  Make a comment below if you can, just to say 'hi.'  And visit others who have also shared.    See you all on the trail.  And have a good poetic week....
