Good Sunday to everyone! The photos I shared today are Wikimedia photos of Hamburg, Germany, the site of the G20 which was going on this week. Undoubtedly, if you watched the news, you are familiar with that.
Well, we really are in the middle of summer here in the northern hemisphere, and I know those of you in the southern hemisphere must be feeling your winter. I do hope that each of you has found time to write some poetry.
First of all, be sure that you take time to read Rosemary's feature The Living Dead this week. She features the poem "The Wishbone" by the Australian poet Rae Desmond Jones, a poet (interestingly) that Rosemary had featured back in 2011 when she first started doing I Wish I'd Written This posts. Rae, a friend of Rosemary's, just recently died. Anyway, don't miss the poem and the excellent article.
So many good poems were written for Susan's "Independence" prompt for Midweek Motif last week. I am going to take the liberty of pointing out the poem that Susan wrote for her own prompt. It really, truly is an excellent one; and I think it needs a larger audience: Still Dreaming. Another poem that really moved me was Marja's poem - The Shadow. Take a look. Next week Sumana's prompt for Midweek Motif is "Movement!"
On Monday Sherry will be featuring poets who have written political poems! It seems these times bring out political perspectives even in poets who have not generally been political. Don't miss this Monday's feature!
Now, with no delay let's share some poetry! Share your poem below. Stop in with a comment. Visit others who share their work. We all enjoy visits! See you on the trail.
