Have any of you celebrated St. Nick's Day this weekend? I know my grandchildren did. I can only hope that they received a small gift or two from St. Nick rather than the coal that naughty children receive.
This is one of the seasons / times here where people here are especially involved in giving to those less fortunate. This year we bought gifts (anonymously) for an 80-year-old nun & gave her not only what she asked for but a little extra as well. And on Christmas Eve we will also work in a soup kitchen. How about you? Do any of you do things to help people less fortunate at this time of year?
This week I am featuring the last of Bjorn's photographs. They were taken in the Swedish mountains. Aren't they beautiful? I won't say I am envious....as I am more a fan of summer than winter. Smiles. But they are beautiful nonetheless. Thank you, Bjorn, for the photos you provided during these past weeks. Next week we will have another set of photographs by Totomai to look forward to.
Be sure to visit Poets United Monday to see Sherry Blue Sky's weekly feature. This week she is featuring Donna, and I hope you will all take time to stop by for a read and a comment.
And just for a heads up, Susan will be having a 'human rights' prompt for Midweek Motif. So if you want to get 'ahead of the game,' feel free. Smiles.
And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or "The Living Dead."
Today link your ONE poem. Then leave a comment below. Really it is fun to hear from you, even if you just say 'good morning.' 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.
