|Crater Lake, Utah, in winter|
Good Sunday morning to everyone! We are nearing the shortest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere; and I don't know about you, but I am always glad to have passed that milestone and noticing the days inching longer again.
Thanks to all of you who have participated in Poets United in some way this past week. And more than that, thank you to each of you who has participated in Poets United this past year.
This past week Sumana provided an inspirational prompt for this time of year - Celebration. We all have something we can celebrate, and this prompt was very timely. On Friday Rosemary shared a poem of Eleanor Farjeon - "In a Far Land Upon a Day" which is a timely read, I think.
We thank Sherry for her wonderful Monday features. We thank Susan and Sumana for the excellent Midweek Motif prompts they provide each week. We thank Rosemary for her I Wish I'd Written This, The Living Dead, and Thought Provokers features she shares with us week after week. We thank each of you poets for your participation here, for your comments on our features, and the visits you make to the poems of other poets.
Poets United will be taking a holiday break. After this Poetry Pantry we will have about two weeks off to give us all a bit of a break. Smiles. We will resume again on December 31 with a Poetry Pantry on the last day of the year, for those who are interested in ending the year with a sharing of poetry!
With no further delay, let's share poetry! Link your one poem below. Stop in the comments and say hello! And visit the poems of those who link. I look forward to seeing you on the trail. And, of course, happy holidays!
