Poetry Pantry #332


Good Sunday, friends.   Well, we are moving along in December.   Just a reminder that we will be having Poetry Pantry today, our regular schedule this week, and Poetry Pantry on December 18.  Then we will be taking a two week holiday break and return again on January 1 with our first Poetry Pantry of 2017.

Thanks to all of you who took part in Poetry United this past week. Sherry, I just want to commend you for the wonderful article you wrote and shared last Monday.  I think losing a pet is something that touches the heart and soul of all of us.

Nice to read so many interesting takes on the Susan's Midweek Motif - "aviation."  I think Susan is really great at thinking of unique topics for people to write on!   This next week I hope many will also write on Sumana's Midweek Motif - "music." It definitely is a musical time of year!

Fascinating poem and article Friday by Rosemary.  She featured the poet Paul Celan & his poem : "I Can Still See You."  It is a poem not to miss by a poet you will want to check out.

Return on Monday for Sherry's wonderful chat with Elizabeth Crawford, a regular participant around Poets United.   This chat will be on a very relevant topic for today:  "A Poet's Task in a Post-Truth World."     (I know I, for the most part, really used to steer clear of the political arena in poetry.  But at the moment I often can't help myself.  I will definitely be returning to read Elizabeth's take on the subject.)

With no delay, let's share poetry.  Link your poem below.  Stop in and say hello.  Visit the poems of others who share.  Come back tomorrow as well, as people will be sharing until midday (US Central Time) Sunday!

  5. Good Morning All, It seems fall has said it's farewell as snow arrives to blanket the landscape.

  6. Good morning... have the grandchildren while the "secret" shopping is being done for Christmas morning. Be back for the pantry's "sugar plums" :)

  7. I totally enjoy your news briefs, Mary! Thank you, too, early readers of my poems. I'll be back to indulge in this feast. Yum.

  8. Fascinating to read various pieces about snowy winters, as I sit here in sarong and thongs – flip-flops to you Yanks! – with the electric fan still on all evening. (Don't worry, this is the way I like it.)

  9. Oh,here's a sweet coincidence (though this comment is perhaps a day too late to be read) – the poem I linked to was just announced as runner-up in the Dizain Challenge at Poetic Asides!
