Poetry Pantry #262



Arturo de Frias Marques

Good Sunday, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend. We have great summer weather here; and I am looking forward to fresh tomatoes from my garden soon.  Already have a few zucchini, and am waiting for more.  Peppers aren't doing too well. Sigh.

Do any of you have photos that you would like to share, ones that I could use in the Pantry?  If so, let me know!  Leave me a note in the comments perhaps.  I do have more New York photos I could share, but I am hoping someone else will send me some.

Do stay tuned to Poets United this week.  Sherry has an interesting interview with a man who seems (to me) fairly new to Poets United, but I have seen him elsewhere for a while.  I think you will enjoy this interview very much.  (I took an early look.  Smiles.)

 Susan has chosen the prompt 'Acceptance' for this Wednesday's Midweek Motif. Her surgery is behind her now, and hopefully she is well on the road to recovery.  Thanks to all of you who continue to support Midweek Motif!!

And on Friday you will be 'blown away' by Rosemary's new feature!  It has a catchy title that will immediately capture your attention.  I took a  sneak peak & was really excited about what I found.  We are so lucky to have such a poetry scholar on staff.  I hope each of you will visit and support her in her Friday features.    We all like a bit of support for our efforts!

If you have Facebook, do think about following Poets United on Facebook.  That way you are informed of each new feature.

With no further delay, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  We always enjoy it if you leave  a short comment when you post.  Think about it as having a cup of coffee with friends before beginning the work of the day!  Do be sure to visit the links of others as well.  It is sort of like knocking on the doors of others, I think.  When we leave a comment, we let someone know that we enjoy them in the 'neighborhood.'  And the blogosphere IS a neighborhood, isn't it?

Do have a good week!

  5. Hi there everyone,

    It’s been a while since I was last here. Today’s offering from me is my latest poem to be published, uploaded to the site this week.

    I have been a bit quiet recently, stricken with eye problems – caused by too many hours on the computer – Doh! But all sorted now… And it’s so lovely to be back here again and really looking forward to catching up with lots of fresh new poetry from you all….

  16. We have zuccini and will have tomatoes. But nothing else is doing very well. I feel sad for my husband who put so much effort into his garden. Thanks again Mary for hosting. I keep wanting to take pictures to share with you, then the week goes along and I forget. So sorry. I'll do better soon. Have a great week!

  19. Mary,

    In time to post my poem this week. Recovering from a horrible cold, which has been prolonged by the most unseasonal weather here in the UK for summer. Very close to using central heating in July, with the wind and endless rain.
    Hopefully some more pleasant days are ahead...
    Eileen

    1. Sorry about your weather, Eileen. Seems that in so many places the weather is unseasonable in one way or another.
