|Baseball Players Practicing - Thomas Eakins, 1875 (public domain)
Greetings, Poets! Hope you all have had a good week.
In the United States baseball season has gotten off to a good start. Every year I try to be a baseball fan like I was when I was a child, but every year I seem to fail. But I do certainly appreciate that baseball is many people's favorite spectator sport. Perhaps in your comment today you could tell us what your favorite spectator sport is.
This is one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week. I hope you look forward to it too. Link your ONE poem. If you are involved with NaPoWriMo, feel free to share one of your poems here. Then visit other poets. If you never visit other poets, eventually people will pass by your blog as well. And I will too. We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others. That is part of the fun as well. We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.
Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new. Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends! Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?
Also, don't forget to visit Poets United other days of the week. For example, every Wednesday Kim posts a new "Verse First" prompt. Hope you will join us there as well! Sherry Blue Sky does a feature (it varies) on Monday, and Rosemary Nissen-Wade does "I Wish I'd Written This" every Friday!
If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site. It is one more way to stay in touch!
And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here: Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.
