Poetry Pantry #294

Photos of the Philippines (#2) by
Tatius Darksong

















Greetings, Friends!  We here in the northern hemisphere are nearing the beginning of spring.  I can almost smell it in the air.  It is also nice to have more hours of daylight.  Spring is always a favorite season for me, as it is such an optimistic time when I think about the greening up of my world, the arrival of birds, etc.  Every day better - that is spring to me.

Today we have another group of photos of the Philippines by Tatius Darksong.  I hope you all read the interview Sherry had with him last Monday.  If not, look back.  It is still there!  And this week Sherry will be featuring 'eco poetry' by three of our regular participants.  You will definitely enjoy them!!

Susan's topic at Midweek Motif this week is "climate."  Good one, Susan!  Definitely lots to say about that.

Don't miss the poem that Rosemary shared for The Living Dead:  "Autumn 1942" by Roland Robinson, an Australian poet.  Interesting that one of the reasons Rosemary chose it is that it is autumn in Australia right now.  Smiles.

Now, with no further delay, enjoy sharing poetry!  Link your one poem below, say hello in comments, and visit others who post.  See you on the trail!

  1. Hi Mary, would you please delete link number 5. I'm not sure what happened. I must've clicked twice or something... But the second link (#5) is the wrong one.

  2. And this bright and sunny pictures are so appropriate for today, since it's very cold (for the season) in NYC.

    Happy first day of spring, everyone!

  9. Warm greetings to Mary and all… A pretty hectic time for Scottie recently… but one month on from the fizzing publication of threads, I have only just published a brand new poem to celebrate Springtime. There is also an intriguing new image up on the site too.

    As ever, comments and/or personal responses on any of this always very welcome and much appreciated… Hope you enjoy…

    There are still a few copies of the first print run of threads available, for friends of loved ones - either direct from the website (with free int p&p) or through the trade, via amazon.com or .co.uk

    Delicious photos of the Phillipines here from Taitus too – very evocative and a treat on my rather grey Sunday herer… Really looking forward to my afternoon’s reading with you all… xxx

  10. Good morning Friends! Really a cool day here for the first day of spring! Hope it is 'springier' where YOU are! I do like spring though. Actually it is my favorite season, as every day is (should be!) just a little bit nicer! Have a great day reading poetry and enjoying a breath of spring if you can!
