Poetry Pantry # 215

Photos from Kuala  Lumpur, Malaysia,
and Achech, Indonesia, by Kaykuala (Hank)

Achech - Indonesia
Vegetable Plots
We passed by little plots of chillies, ladies' fingers and brinjals /egg-plants when walking 
along through the villages

Acheh  -  Indonesia
 The scenery is similar to regions of South-East Asia

Acheh - Indonesia
Inland Lake
A calming effect can be felt immediately. It is exhilarating and much better being there

Kuala Lumpur
Putrajaya: Transit stop to KLIA (Airport)
There is an LRT transport system that connects the City to the nearby suburbs  The City is currently
undergoing massive construction works for an MRT system to complement the LRT and to extend
the lines further to about 30 km from the City center It is expected to be ready by 2018

Kuala Lumpur
Traditional Streets
Typical of the inner streets. This was in mid-morning a few hours before the lunch hour rush

Kuala Lumpur
Shops in the inner City are those ideal for tourists with items unlike those at the big shopping Malls

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.  I just don't GET people who link and enjoy visits, yet don't bother to visit others -- even those who spent time making comments on their poetry.

This week I am sharing a second set of photos that Hank (Kaykuala) shared from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Achech, Indonesia.  I will be sharing the last set of his photos next week.  How wonderful it is to be able to visit so many parts of the world through the Pantry. 

Be sure to visit Poets United Monday 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 there is always a  great turn-out for Midweek Motif.  We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast!  (And, ha, perhaps many of you have noticed that if you look at one week's prompt Susan gives  a clue about the following week's prompt as well, so you can get a head start.)

And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or  "The Living Dead."

Again:  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.

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 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.
