Poetry Pantry #417

Aurora Borealis in Sweden

Greetings, Poets!  Hard to believe that it is almost the end of summer; and children will be heading back to school soon, if they haven't already.  Where does time go?

Here we are again sharing poetry.  Today I shared another photo from Wikimedia Commons.  I have never seen an Aurora Borealis and may never have an opportunity, but what beauty!

Thinking of beauty, Rosemary just shared the poem "The Beautiful Changes" by Richard Wilbur for her The Living Dead this week.  We do need to contemplate the beauty in our world, I think.  Thinking of beauty, many of you participated in Sumana's prompt at Midweek Motif this past week:  The World is a Beautiful Place!   And it surely is.

Monday, be sure to check back, as Sherry is featuring poems written by three of us!  Ha, myself included.  I am proud to be featured by Sherry alongside two other such fine poets!

Next week Susan's Midweek Motif is "What if....?"  That surely leaves it wide open, doesn't it?  Smiles.

Now without further delay, let's share poetry.  Link your one poem below.  Stop in and say hello.  Visit the poems of others who post!


  1. Good morning, Mary! Good morning Poets! I hope you all have a restful Sunday - this time next week, September will have already begun. The weather is already a little cooler and the leaves on our cherry tree have started to fall. We get the Northern Lights up here on the North Norfolk coast and they are spectacular!

  2. Hello everyone!💞 I hope you all have a lovely Sunday, sharing an old poem today as I am down with fever and sore throat.

    I'll be around shortly to read and comment💞 thank you so much for hosting us, Mary.

  3. 5 Days to Independence[August 31st] here in T&T, Writing from a country good and properly well shook up after Last Tuesdays 6.9; is awesome to be living another Sunday
    Happy to face the pantry doors opened by Mary, thanks Mary. A Good Sunday to my poet friends.

    much love...

    1. Awesome, indeed! How awful is destruction, how awe full is life. I'm glad you are here!

  4. Good morning, everyone! Looking forward to reading your words today. See you on the trail.

  5. Gillena, so happy you are safe. Thanks for hosting, Mary. I cant get over how fast these weeks go by. Happy Sunday, friends.

  6. Good day, poets!
    will be back to read later. :)

  7. Hallo All- I've been remiss in posting due to my mishap on Tuesday. Added a poem I wrote today! Have a peaceful Sunday.

  8. I don't expect to see the Aurora in person either Mary – but yes, a very beautiful photo. We are so lucky to live in an age when armchair travelling is made so easy and enriching for us by technology. (Just as we can sit in our own living rooms and watch world class entertainment, or see great works of art in galleries we'll never set foot in.)

  9. I'm extremely late doing my rounds, but... it would be great to enjoy the poetic yum as I sip my green tea before bed. I hope to see Aurora Borealis one day, but... who knows. Until then, I shall enjoy the image. Thanks for sharing it, Mary.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend.
