Poetry Pantry #386

After lengthy rain breaks the clouds over the peaks of Gran Paradiso....Italy

Greetings, Poets!  Hope everyone had a good (and poetic) week.  We are in the middle of a cold streak here.  Brrrrrr.  Great weather to stay inside and write or read some poetry.

Many of you joined us in writing Poetry About the Body for Sumana's Midweek Motif! Who would have thought there was so much to say about something we so often take for granted.  Come back next Wednesday when Susan will prompt us to write about Psyche / Soul.

Friday Rosemary presented a most interesting poem for her Thought Provokers series.  She featured a poem by Aussie poet Robin Archbold called "I Don't Write a Political Poem, Okay?" It is worth a read!  And a thought.

Monday's interview is a wonderful catch-up with a very talented and original poet who posts here off and on.  I know you will know her!!  Perhaps we can convince her to share her poetry here more often.  Smiles. Stay tuned.

Now without delay, let's share poetry!  Link your poem below.  Then make the rounds visiting the poems of others who have shared.  See you on the trail.

  2. It's grey here this morning but I'm enjoying the view out of my window. In our garden, a trio of pheasants is picking at the undergrowth under the willows. Only females this morning - I don't know where the handsome chaps have gone. But I'm keeping my eyes peeled. Have a great Sunday!

  12. It's cold and snowy in my world. I'm trying to get back in the groove after a few weeks battling pneumonia (not my favorite Christmas present!). It's good to be back!

  13. On the West Coast of Vancouver Island, it is WARM, and sunny....the beaches are full of happy surfers and happy dogs and today I will walk a wild beach that I havent been to for years. Itr will be stellar. Thanks for hosting the Pantry, Mary. I LOVE the beautiful photo. Clouds and mist on mountains is one of my favourite things and here it happens often, which makes me happy. Smiles.

  14. We are freezing here, too. I was going to venture outside today, but changed my mind when the wind slapped me. I will warm myself with some poetry.
