Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week.  We had an active Poetry Pantry last week, and I hope this week we have the same kind of group.  It is always enjoyable for me to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same.  Admittedly, I personally appreciate those with whom there is a feeling of reciprocity, which makes for a feeling of community.  I think we ALL tend to visit (after a while) people with whom we reciprocate.

This week (and next week) I am featuring some photos taken during a vacation in Hungary by Gabriella.   Thank you, Gabriella, for sharing with us.

Be sure to visit Poets United tomorrow to see what Sherry Blue Sky  has planned.  

Glad to see the turnout  for  Mid-Week Motif Wednesday continues to be good.  We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast!

And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade is featuring on her I Wish I Had Written This!

I 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.  There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries.  I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. 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 (after the new year) Susan Chast posts a new "Mid-Week Motif" 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.



  1. Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday!

  2. Looking forward to reading everyone's poetry today. Stay warm.

  3. Hi all! I haven't been around for a few weeks - busy days means less poetry. I'm sharing a piece I wrote this weekend.

  4. Good morning to all from the UK. I'm back here on Sunday with my new poem for the month: 'The Day is done...' and looking forward to catching up with everyone...

  5. Good morning , Sunday poets!

  6. good morning my coffee and playing catch up...

  7. Good morning,
    I need something to take my mind off the relentless storms battering Europe again this weekend. Reading poetry with my morning coffee may do the trick.

  8. I clicked on my bookmark here this morning and instant nostalgia! I maintained an apartment in Budapest for nearly twenty years. Thanks for the photos Gabriella :)

    Wow so many already linked. It's going to take a while to get through them all today and tomorrow.

    Happy blogging

  9. Like the bad brother who shows up only when he needs money for a car repair, I return to my home hoping mom answers the door.

    1. Nice to see you!! (And I think mom will answer the door. Smiles!)

  10. The photos of Budapest are beautiful...thank you for sharing! Looking forward to reading some poetry today.

  11. Well, I have enjoyed what I have read so far. Nice to see SO many people on the commenting trail as well, making reciprocal visits!!

  12. Hello again, it's been a devastating week for us..but slowly things will be going back to normal...
    I've been wanting to visit Budapest for some time now.. it's so close it's a shame I haven't already visited.

  13. glad to be posting again. :)

  14. Mary,

    Caring for my grandson today, and recovering from a horrible winter cold. My words were lazing in another place last week!!!
    Hoping to find a new energy and to return to writing asap....This is my effort:)

    Happy Sunday,

  15. Such beautiful photos, Gabriella. I love the old architecture, old buildings have so much more character than modern ones. Looking forward to rummaging around in the Pantry today!

  16. I will join in again! As soon as as I am home!

  17. I attempted poetry.

    Thanks for the chance.
