Good Sunday, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend.   It is State Fair time in my area.  Looking forward to visiting sometime this week.  It is always a big event & exciting to see all of the displays, food, and animals.

Thanks to Sanaa Rizvi for her photos today!!  She visited Pakistan this last week & was nice enough to take some photos to share.   Really, I am looking for photos, so if YOU have some to share on Sunday, please do let me know.

If you have not read Sumana's contribution to "The Living Dead," scroll back & read the article before this post.

Tomorrow Sherry has one of her wonderful poet chats.  Please remember to return and check it out.

For Midweek Motif this week Sumana is prompting us to write poems on the subject of beauty.  Susan is continuing to recover, but it will take her a while to be prompting.

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.   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 having them among us.  The blogosphere IS quite a neighborhood, isn't it?

Do have a good day & a poetic week!
