Good day, Friends!  Hope everyone is having a poetic April.  Hard to believe it is half over already, isn't it?  What a wonderful month for writing and reading poetry as well as getting out and enjoying nature as it comes back to life here in the Northern Hemisphere anyway.  Smiles.

This week we are featuring more of Sumana's photos. Thanks again, Sumana.

Scroll back to the last feature at Poets United if you haven't seen it.  Rosemary featured a delightful poem "Playing With Children" by Ryokan that you don't want to miss.  I hadn't heard of him, but after reading this poem I would like to read more.

And tomorrow be sure to return.  Sherry features a fine poet who is MOST often a contributor to Poetry Pantry & is very active in the Poets United community.  No more will just have to return.

Susan's prompt at Midweek Motif this next Wednesday is "Organic."   We will all be interested in the direction you go with this prompt.   (I am one who has been eating more and more organic foods.  Are you?)

All right, time to share some poetry.  Link your one poem below.  Stop in to the comments and say hello.  And read the poetry of others who link.  Thank you to those who comment on the poetry of others in the spirit of community.  We all enjoy having others read our poetry, and it is fun to see what others say.  See you on the trail.....and have a good week.

  10. Good morning from the East Coast! My poem for this week is about the Virgin Mary! She's been my guardian angel for awhile now. I've been so busy with school assignments that my muse has been void for sometime. Hope this poem suffices. I hope you don't mind my Catholic theme. Peace and have a great day to all!

  20. Hello,

    I am so sorry I am late to read but, I've had some computer issues. I will now be making the rounds to read all the wonderful poetry offered today! Thanks for understanding.

  21. Hello everyone, sorry I'm late to read you all. So much poetry happening all over the place this month, I forgot I had not yet checked out the offerings here!

  22. Number 38, but I made it! So happy to share a short poem I wrote in 2013 that I never posted before called "The Leaf." I wrote it for the animation posted with it and this time, it isn't one of mine.

    I will be around to read during the week and I hope everyone has a nice week!

    I'll have to give "organic" some thought. I love to eat organic when I can afford it. It's time for breakfast and organic oatmeal it is!

    Hugs! Bekkie
