Good day, Poets!

Hope each one of you is enjoying a good weekend.  In this country we celebrate Mother's Day today.  Some of you may be involved in Mother's Day festivities one way or another.  If so, enjoy them; and then come and share some time with us.  Smiles!  Thanks to all of you who join us weekly in our love of sharing Poetry. And thanks to Sara McNulty  this week for the beautiful photos of the Oregon coast.

Perhaps some of you have already seen the announcement at Midweek Motif, but (in case you have not) Poets United is thrilled to have a new team member, Sumana Roy,  who will be doing one Midweek Motif prompt a month.  Susan's excellent prompts will continue to be featured every other week of the month! I know many of you know Sumana from her regular participation here at Poets United.  Please visit Midweek Motif this coming Wednesday for her first Midweek Motif Prompt, which is "waves."  This Monday Sherry Blue Sky will be featuring Sumana's blog as the Blog of the Week as well so we get to know Sumana a little bit more, if we don't already.

Rosemary always has an excellent feature every Friday.  Either "I Wish I'd Written This" or "The Living Dead."  These are always well written & give us new poets to enjoy and appreciate.  She puts a lot of time into her research, so please take a look at the articles when you can.

With no further adieu, hope that you will enjoy the Pantry today.  Leave a short comment when you post; and be sure to visit the links of others.  I will look forward to reading what you share.
