Good day, Poets!

I was going to share another set of Totomai's photos, but he told me that he will be in the Middle East this weekend and will not be able to participate.  So I told him I would wait with his photos until next week.  Meanwhile here is another set of Washington D.C. photos, which I hope you will also enjoy.

Tomorrow Sherry Blue Sky is featuring as blog of the week  a blog by a prolific Indian poet who is fairly new to Poets United.  Try to guess who she is, and stop over tomorrow to see if you are right!

And on Wednesday for Midweek Motif Susan is prompting us to write a poem about beginning summer or winter, as those of us in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres have now crossed that change-of-season line.

And next Friday, of course, stop back for Rosemary's feature.  Will it be "The Living Dead" or "I Wish I'd Written This"?  Come and see.  But really I hope that you will take a look at her feature this past Thursday.  She featured a stunning palindrome poem by Diane Castaglioni titled 'for Ornette' which really impressed me &, I think, deserves a wider read!

With no further delay, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  Leave a short comment when you post; and be sure to visit the links of others.  I will look forward to reading what you share.

  5. Happy Poetry Pantry to all! We have rains the whole day at my side of the world so the clouds are out of sight & nowhere to reach. Hope the weather improves tonight so I can go, hang out with some friends later. Smiles.

  18. Good morning, friends. Mother Nature has outdone herself, it is a perfect summer morning out there. When I was feeding the horses, I saw a wild bunny hop on by. Mary, I especially find the Viet Nam memorial moving.....and love the photo of the George Washington Memorial, as it makes me think of Forrest Gump!
