Poetry Pantry #445


The Himalayas in Nepal


What a beautiful world we live in! We hope you are enjoying a wonderful, sunny weekend. It has been another great week at Poets United. On Friday, Rosemary posted a hilarious poem about television and children, by Roald Dahl, in her The Living Dead series. Scroll back, if you would like a chuckle.

This Monday, we are featuring one of our very first members at Poets United, in 2010: Carrie Van Horn. Do stop by, as Carrie shares her beautiful poems, and tells us about a challenging event, and a heartbreaking loss, that took place in her life this past year. 

On Wednesday, Susan's prompt at Midweek Motif will be: Writing Poetry, a topic we poets seem to enjoy discussing.  I'm looking forward to the responses.

For now, top up your coffee, and pull your chairs in close. Let's see what goodies await in the Pantry! We are so happy to see you! We wouldn't be here without you!

  2. Hello, everybody. What a spectacular picture, Sherry! Andrew and I had a very happy time visiting Nepal, back in 1998 – but our mountain ascent was done in a small plane.

    I've been having a very lovely, sunny Sunday, thanks – one of those perfect autumn days, warm but not too hot. Yesterday was very rainy – but I went to the movies with a friend; good day for it.

  7. Good Morning.
    Missed all the treats (creativity) in the pantry. Moving slower than I am accustomed too but I will hobble along later this rainy spring day to see what delightful surprises are in store for reading.

  10. Colleen, i see your comments are closed. Just wanted to tell you your poem is a wonderful expression of how one needs to be to live with peace and a clear conscience. A pleasure to read in such times as these.

  13. Myrna, lovely to see you, my friend! That photo is spectacular, isnt it? I have been watching films about Tibet since I posted it. I am so drawn to the Himalayas, if only in my dreams.

  16. Hi gals, NaPoWriMo, yay! I will be away from the 4th to the 8th, with very sporadic internet access. But if I dont post each day, I can hopefully catch up when I get back home.

  17. What a fantastic sight. I wonder what it would feel like to see the sunrise at a place like that.

    Now, to read some poetry (a bit late).
