Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week for Poetry Pantry  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 is the second week I am featuring some photos taken in Hungary (when she was on holiday)  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. Hope everyone will enjoy the Pantry today.....perhaps in between watching Olympic events. Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. Happy Sunday Afternoon! Thanks Mary for hosting & for the fascinating photos of your adventure, Gabriella. Smiles.

  3. Good morning everyone! Have a happy Sunday.

  4. Happy Sunday to everyone! Enjoy it!
    Lovely photographs! Budapest has some interesting structures.. really about time to visit it :)

  5. A pair of prompts went into the making of this poem - my only piece written this weekend and sharing with PU.

    Happy Sunday to all.

  6. How picturesque the photos are! Happy Sunday, poets :)

  7. good morning poets...
    got my coffee and off visiting...those that are actually visiting

    1. I do understand about 'those that are actually visiting.'

  8. Guess who woke up so late that I'm number 25? But here are only 8 comments, so maybe they'll all be back to have a conversation. I like Gabriella's pictures, especially the one of the Budapest Castle Hill Funicular which I haven't seen before. San Francisco could use one like that! Happy Sunday.

    1. Yes, indeed it would be nice if people would stop in and say hi!! Glad you did, Susan.

  9. Well, I have made my rounds through those who have visited or who usually visit. I will be back again in a few hours... meanwhile, enjoy the Pantry.

  10. Happy Sunday friends...beautiful photos..

  11. Wonderful photos, so evocative...Thanks, Gabriela and Mary for sharing! Peaceful Sunday :)xx

  12. Good Morning poets! Hope it is sunny where you are!

  13. Mary,

    I am pleased to have found time to write this poem, as I have been inspired by today Sunday, and time in my garden tidying up after the recent storms.
    I shall visit and reciprocate to other Blogs, between today and Tuesday:)
    Happy New Week,

  14. I really love Budapest... Been there once.. a little bit too warm in the middle of the summer... but a beautiful town. And the baked goods are divine...

  15. I am glad a lot of you enjoyed the photos and told me so. Thank you!

  16. Well, again I think I am up to date with commenting on poetry. I have not commented on the poems of people who are generally non participatory besides dropping their links. I really believe in the philosophy of....someone comments on my blog, I comment on theirs. Nothing hard about that. But if it happens there are weeks of unresponsiveness, I too skip these blogs.

  17. Happy Sunday :) I'll be making rounds this eve and tomorrow...thanks Mary and Gabriella!
