Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week. Hope you each had a poetic week & also will share one of your poems here.  It is always fun to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same. 

This week's photos were taken by Sam Edge.  They are photos of his snowmobile trip - Mount Timothy, Caribou Region, British Columbia, Canada,  the winter of 2012. Thanks, Sam.  You let us all know what we have to look forward to!

I will issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry.  If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, let me know what kind of photos you have.  I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited.  Send inquiries first to letting me know what you have.  I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.

Anyway, with no further adieu, this is one of my favorite spaces to post poetry each week.  I hope you look forward to it too.  An older one or a new one, it's your choice.

Link your ONE poem.   Then leave a comment below. Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  (If I miss your poem, visit me, and I will visit you... I am like anyone else, appreciating reciprocity.) 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 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.

  9. good morning....still on vacay with my will visit those i can in the time i have...and will def return comments

  10. Hello again everyone –it’s been a while… But not long back from recent quite extensive trip to South America, in search of the Maya – Southern Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras & Belize, which was as amazing as it was challenging! And now looking forward to catching up reading lots of new stuff this autumn afternoon…
    To celebrate getting home safe & sound, I have put a new poem ‘As the years…’ up on the site, as well a selection of photos from the adventure – ‘The Maya’ & ‘The Beauty of Meso America’ – so Mary’s request last week for some travel photos was something of a happy coincidence! Enjoy…

    p.s. Do let me know what you think, Mary - I'm sure I could sort out a selection of Mayan images for posting here one week, if you thought that would be of interest...

    Regards Scott

  11. Restful here for a moment before I head out to Talk Cinema and then Pendle Hill for a gallery opening and poetry reading. Be back here late afternoon to read some more.

  12. such beautiful photographs! love them!
    Happy Sunday to all! :)

  13. there is a majestic feel to British Columbia...

  14. We had a tiny bit of snow here in Interior BC last night. I can't wait for more though. LOVE snow! Great photos and yes, BC is a beautiful province, overall.

    Hope everyone has a great week. Looking forward to reading your poems in the next few days. I'm just getting over a cold and I have a lot of catching up to do this week.

  15. Mary,

    Thank you to Sam for sharing these beautiful views of British Columbia. It is at the top of my travel list!!
    My poem has made it to The pantry in time this week....I shall reciprocate and visit other contributors.
    Happy Sunday and week ahead,

  16. so happy to be back! after 4am now, but i'll be back to visit later on Monday.

    have a good week, everyone!
