I love this photo. It makes me smile every time. We hope you are having a good weekend, friends. We had another good week at Poets United, with another one coming up. On Monday, in one of my favourite features of all-time,  we are sharing poems written to beloved dogs after they crossed the rainbow bridge. Bring your Kleenex and stop by to feel the love!

On Wednesday, Susan's prompt at Midweek Motif is:  Zero Tolerance, a policy that we wish would be universally applied to such things as racism, hate speech - so many issues. There are bound to be some good responses to that. And did you catch Rosemary's feature on Friday? Scroll back if you haven't seen it. The topic was Beowulf, the classic translated by Seamus Heaney. Interesting to contemplate an epic harking back to times when folks' drawing room entertainment was poetry and music.

Let's top up our coffee and dive into the Pantry. It is always my favourite part of Sunday morning. I am away from home, and travelling, so I will keep up as I am able and catch up when I get home.

  8. Happy Sunday, fellow poets! We expect a bit of snow today, through the mountain pass as I head home. But nothing to compare to those in the polar vortex, so I wont complain. Looking forward to reading your poems and i will read more once i am home later today.

  17. Hi everyone, I know we are only supposed to submit ONE poem – and I have; it's just that I discovered that by some glitch my name at the first link leads somewhere else entirely. (As no doubt others have by now discovered too.) Try the second one.
