|Christmas Tree in NK Shopping Center - Stockholm, Sweden|
Greetings, Friends. Hope you all are doing well and enjoying the blessings that December can bring. This will be the last Poetry Pantry of 2018. It has been a good year for Poets United, and we hope it has been a good year for each of you too -- both poetically and personally.
After this Pantry closes, Poets United will be taking a break until January 6, when we will resume our regular features again. (We have some great things planned for the new year!! But, for now, mum is the word!)
Hopefully, during this break time, each of you will be taking the opportunity to rest, enjoy, and celebrate (whether it be a holiday or the end of the year) as well.
Sumana, Susan, Sherry, Rosemary, and I all have enjoyed sharing time (and poetry) here with you this year. We have had some good times, shared good poetry, and enjoyed some wonderful features, haven't we? Some of us have gotten to know each other well over the years, and reading each other's poetry is like having a visit with friends.
I personally will not be quite as present in the new year as I have been. It has not been easy lately for me to come up with original poetry that I deem to have 'redeeming qualities.' Perhaps this happens when one writes for a number of years. But I will be around...off and on.
We all wish you a nice break! Sherry will be putting up an 'official break message' tomorrow. See you in 2019.
