The Poetry Pantry # 436


Along the Wild Pacific Trail in Ucluelet, B.C.,
Tofino's sister village


The weeks fly by, and here we are again in the Pantry. Yay! We hope you had a wonderful week, in your little corner of the globe. On Friday, I featured two rather amazing young women, who came from opposite poles on the planet, to recite a poem together on an inceberg in Greenland. If you missed it, do scroll back. The video is rather wonderful, and carries an important message.

On Monday, we are visiting one of our newer members, Linda Lee Lyberg. Do stop by to offer her some words of welcome to our community. On Wednesday, Susan is offering us a prompt dear to my heart: Climate Change. I am looking forward to reading the resulting poems.

Speaking of reading poems, let's top up our coffee and do just that. Link your poem, tell us how you're doing, and visit your fellow poets, in the spirit of community. How grateful I am, to have this forum in which to share and appreciate poetry!

  1. HA! For once, I am not late to the party.....because here it is just after midnight, and I was up late reading. Nice to be among the early-birds for once. Smiles. We were expecting high winds here, but so far they seem to have passed us by and hit up-Island. Waves are big though - wild and wonderful.

  3. I thought I had nothing to put in the Pantry today but on rising the Muse drew something from the well - hope all are enjoying this Sunday - the bracing tree image reminds me that I must do something physical before paying any virtual visits

  4. Good morning, friends. We had quite a large snowstorm yesterday...and now outside we have a blanket of white. Beautiful to behold! Now, however, it has turned very, very cold. Brrrrrrh. Hope you all have a poetic week. Look forward to reading your words.

  5. I'm really looking forward to reading some Climate Change poetry on Wednesday. I'm extremely curious to see what everyone will brew.

    Happiest Sunday, everyone.

  6. Thanks for hosting Sherry -

    and glad you're safe and not being blown about - put rocks in your pockets if outside ;)

    hope everyone has a great week ahead - I'll be shoveling some (thankfully not as crazy for it as in other places!) but DANG - someone forgot to close the Arctic Barn Door! Holy frozen cows. Windchill alerts for frostbite warnings in seconds etc. Even the spruce and pines look cold today!

    Stay safe everyone, - happy reading and writing - be back later to check in.

  7. The east does seem to be having rather extreme weather. It stays pretty mild here on the West Coast. Stay warm, everyone! Hot drinks and firesides!
