Greetings, Poets! It surely is a sad week in this country with another school shooting having taken place. Sometimes it is hard to get one's mind off what is going on and sit down and write poetry. But perhaps poetry can help something in some way. We can hope. We live in hope. And then again there are the Olympics which perhaps lift our spirits as we watch athletes from all over the world compete. Oh, and the photo above is a Wikimedia photo...beautiful, I think.
Thanks to all of you who participated in last week's Midweek Motif - "Word" presented by Sumana. Next week the Midweek Motif will be "Voice" presented by Susan.
I hope you didn't miss Rosemary's Midnight Musings, in which she features a friend of hers - Sarah Temporal - an active slam poet. I really enjoy the variety of articles Rosemary presents!
Come back on Monday for Sherry's feature which includes Poems of the Week by three Poets United poets!
Now with no further delay, let's share poetry. Link your poem below. Say hello in the comments. Visit the poems of others who link. Look forward to seeing you on the trail!
