Poetry Pantry #299




Good Sunday to you all, Poets!  Hope everyone had a good week, especially that you celebrated Earth Day in some small way.  Also, for those of you who are doing Poem a Day, you are now on the home stretch, which must feel good.

Again, we had an interesting week here at Poets United.  An interview of the poet CC, Susan's challenging Midweek Motif 'Organic,' and Rosemary's feature of Shay Caroline Simmons' poem 'Brick-Dumb Motherfucker.'  Hope you enjoyed each of these offerings.

Now this coming week we start with Sherry's post featuring a poem by each of us on the Poets United staff.   They are all on the same theme, from our own individual perspectives.  Please come back and take a look.  Wednesday Susan's theme for Midweek Motif is 'Open/openness.'  (That leave it pretty wide open, doesn't it?  Smiles!)

And now with no further delay, let's share poetry.  Link your one poem below. Stop in to the comments and say hello.  Read other poems that are posted to support our wonderful poetry community.  Have a great week!

    1. Thanks, Bjorn. It is a good theme for us all to think about this week. Interestingly, Earth Day originated in my home state of Wisconsin & is not celebrated around the world!

  17. I am late again on Sunday ~sigh~. Please stop by and read my poem I'm linking for Earth Day. I will be around to read this week. I have heavy reading due to the amount of poems written in April but I will get there.

    Today is very windy I was almost blown off my bicycle when I went riding. Lol! I will try and get here more early next Sunday.

    Have a great week everyone! Hugs! Bekkie
