Poetry Pantry #419

Photos of Giethoorn, Netherlands  --
the small Venice of the North
By Marja Blom

Greetings, friends....and thanks, again, Marja for sharing your beautiful photography with us.  This week we have photos from the Netherlands to enjoy.

If you have not read Rosemary's I Wish I'd Written This this week, run don't walk back to it! She features a poem by Thomas Keily - "We are Not Afraid" - which really speaks to us in these difficult times.

Also, if you did happen to miss Sherry's chat with Robin Timber / Old Egg last Monday, please scroll back to read that as well.  Robin talked about what it was growing up in London during World War II, and it is a chat not to be missed.

Monday Sherry is going to feature poems of peace by some of our poets.

Wednesday Sumana's Midweek Motif will be "Sunset."

And now, let's share poetry.  Link your one poem below.  Say 'hello' in the comments; and then visit the poems of others who link.  See you on the trail.
