Poetry Pantry #350

A Giraffe Sculpture in Front of an Art Gallery
(just for fun!)
Greetings, friends!   I hope you have had a chance to write a poem to share with us in the Pantry today.

If you haven't read Rosemary's Moonlight Musings, do scroll back.   There is a very interesting discussion going on about whether we should separate a writer from his/her art-- whether or not an artist's personal life (for better or worse) matters.  Do take a look.

We really had an enjoyable Midweek Motif this week, where Susan presented us with the timely topic "Holiness / Holy Day."  It really got many of us thinking.  Sumana's prompt on Wednesday will be "A Grain of Sand."  Think about it ahead of time, and see what you can come up with.

On Monday Sherry is featuring one of our very prolific poets -- Bjorn Rudberg. I know you will enjoy this blog of the week!

Now, with no delay, let's share poetry.  Link your poem below.  Say hello in the comments.   And visit others who share their work.  See you on the trail. Enjoy!

  11. Happy Sunday after Earth Day! I hope everyone enjoyed the planet yesterday I know I went for a bike ride and although it was cloudy it was in the 60's with no wind. So lovely! I didn't see any Giraffes though.

    I've been so busy that I've missed some prompts but I will try to drop in and I will read for today this week.

    I have something special from the past a little taste of a place I used to live for over 10 years.

    Group hug! Have a good week.

  12. Happy Sunday everyone. I'll be reading later.

  13. This prompt inspired a poem with new outlook :)
