Poetry Pantry #496

Wisconsin Horizons


We are getting so close to 500 Poetry Pantries! That is a lot of poetry appreciation! We are so glad you are here. We couldn't do it without you!

Autumn is so gorgeous, with its vibrant flaming colours. We hope your Muse is inspired by all the beauty, flaming brightly before succumbing to winter greys. I love crunching through the leaves, happy as a pumpkin! And I love coming upon the pumpkins themselves, grinning on doorsteps, and other unexpected places, like cliff edges, trees, and driftwood.




We have another good week lining up at Poets United. Did you catch Sanaa's Wild Friday? I love the whole idea of Wild Fridays, needless to say! On Monday, in my Life of a Poet series, we will get to know Ron. Lavalette  a little better. Ron writes at Scrambled, Not Fried.  And on Wednesday, Susan's Midweek prompt will be The Food We Eat. Cool. 

The theme for Magaly's next interactive Moonlight Musings (on Friday October 18th) will be "The Positive Side of Change", an exploration of the ways in which change can be a good thing, for writing and for living. That sounds interesting!

Today, let's dive into the Pantry ~ top up your coffee, settle in, and let's enjoy some lovely poetry.

  1. Good morning, poetry pals. It is twenty minutes past the witching hour here, and my eyes popped open to see if you were here. And you ARE, yay! I am so looking forward to morning, when I will enjoy each of your offerings, like a kid with a Christmas stocking.

  8. I love this pictures, Sherry. I'm always taken by how autumn seems to try to give us an extra fix of color, so that we can survive winter. Susan upcoming prompt sounds very appetizing. It will be a hospital day for me, but I think I will cook something for it anyway.

    Happiest Sunday, everyone!

    Happy Thanksgiving, by the way, to our Canadian members, of which I am one. Smiles. I am making a batch of chunky chili for a potluck with friends. The sun is shining and life is bee-yoo-tee-ful!
