This week poet Anjum Wasim Dar from Pakistan, who writes at Poetic Oceans, is sharing some photos from Nottingham, England. They were taken at Nottingham Castle and at University Jubilee Castle. She has written the poem Ode to Nottingham that she would also like to share.
Be sure to visit Poets United tomorrow to see what Sherry Blue Sky has planned to share. Will it be a featured poet? A featured blog? Or a featured poem?
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" or "The Living Dead."
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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?
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.
Good morning, poets! Thank you for sharing your photos Anjum Wasim Dar. Happy Sunday!ReplyDelete

Happy Sunday, everyone!! Am sharing a poem I wrote about six years ago, when I was lowest after a heart attack. Hope this doesn't make others unhappy and low today.ReplyDelete
Panchali, I just read your poem. Whew, I am sure that, after having a heart attack, you really were thinking about mortality. Sometimes experiences such as this are indeed wake-up calls.Delete
I have a friend who lives in Nottingham. :) Great shots and looking forward to some fabulous poetry. Hope everyone is well and enjoying their Sunday.ReplyDelete
Great, my cousin a doctor, lives in Nottingham. Great city very historic beautiful and inspiringDelete
I am visiting from my rest stops on the road--currently on Rte. 81 just inside Pennsylvania and heading home to Philadelphia. Sunny and cold and the road is sparsely populated at 9 am. I'll be back.ReplyDelete

Dear Sherry Thank you It was Christmas Eve 2003 It felt like walking through History -unforgettable visit-my son was behind the camera and the car wheel...now an MBA graduate from Nottingham UniversityDelete
I love the picture with the slight blurriness and the lights. I'm still doing NaPoWriMo so linked to one of the poems I wrote so far, about a stone and a star.. :)ReplyDelete
It has been awhile, but it is my intent to become more active with my writing. Sometimes we over-commit to others, neglecting our own happiness. I apologize for my absence.ReplyDelete
I will be visiting everyone here. Thank you.
Great to see you here!!! Welcome back.Delete
I actually shared a poem from last year's NaPoWriMo.ReplyDelete
Phew! If there were no glitches, I have now visited every single blog linked and left a comment. yay! :DReplyDelete
