Poetry Pantry #395


Taken Inside the Milwaukee Art Center




Time passes so quickly.  I cannot believe it is Sunday again and time for another Poetry Pantry.  My weeks become busier as spring begins.  Time for hibernation is over, it seems.  The world is coming back to life, and it is a good feeling.  The photo above is one that I took inside the Milwaukee Art Center a couple weeks ago.  It is a beautiful building!

It has been another busy week at Poets United.  Monday Sherry featured poems by Rajani, Kerry, and Magaly.   Wednesday Sumana's Midweek Motif was SCREAM.  Next week's Midweek Motif will be Colour/Color.  Feel free to write a poem ahead if you like.

Friday Sherry shared the poem "sacred" for I Wish I'd Written This.  Scroll back if you haven't read it.  Just as Rosemary has been sharing the works of Australian poets, Sherry will be periodically sharing a work of a Canadian poet.  This poem was written by a young member of the Driftpile Cree Nation and what a powerful poem it is!  This poet has a great future.

Monday, be sure to return. Poets United has lost a fine poet, and Sherry features him and his work.  He hadn't posted for a while, but is indeed missed.  His wife is still around in the 'sphere' and will probably read this article as well.  So let's all visit PU tomorrow and give this poet some 'love.' I think many of you will remember him, especially those who have been around for a while.  So sad when we lose someone...and so quickly too.

With no further delay, let's share poetry. Link your one poem below.  Say hello in the comments.  And visit the poems of others who link.

  4. Happy Sunday Morning to all....we are still awaiting spring here so I am still hibernating...very cold in the single digits and more like February than March. Enjoy your day and I'll be around to visit soon!

  5. It's been a week of loss for me too, with two friends gone to God – one very unexpectedly on Wednesday morning (I had seen her only the Friday before and had no inkling) and one very much expected but equally sad yesterday afternoon. And I've ben suffering from a heavy cold all week. And I very nearly lost a lot of money via an online transaction. It wasn't my mistake, but it wasn't a scam either I'm thankful to say, and I managed to avert that loss. After all that, it will be nice to spend some time now reading poetry!

    3. Sorry to hear this - you have a big heart Rosemary with room for many friends - no wonder they leave such a gap in you.
      Get well soon and keep your money close and your friends closer still

  6. Good morning, friends. Still the chill is in the air here. Not spring-like at all. Soon, very soon, I hope. Look forward to reading your words today. See you out on the trail.

  7. Wintry weather has popped back for one last tussle this weekend and of course our whole infrastructure comes to a halt - we need to (wo)man up as a nation! Meanwhile I look forward to reading your poems as there will be much indoor time today

  8. The sun is bright, but it's cold, cold, cold in New York City. We are expecting snow showers in the first days of spring. So, I guess we'll warm ourselves with poetry... and stories... and coffee...

    Happiest Sunday, everyone.

  9. I am off to do the morning ritual of Sunday Meeting for Worship--so happy to be home while my two brothers are with my aging parents five hours north. I will be back for coffee and poetry, later.

    1. Oh, Mary, I forgot to say how much I like this week's picture. Its beauty is greater in that it is solitary and full of Light.

  10. The world is bitter cold and crisp here - but I am warm inside!
    Happy Sunday all, and to Rosemary - please know my thoughts are with you.

  11. The art Center looks amazing, Mary. So beautiful. Here on the West Coast, we have been in spring for a while. Blossoms out and warm, sometimes hot, sunshine. The gardeners are all palpitating to start planting! Happy Sunday, all.
