Poetry Pantry 441


Zimbabwe


We have some very exciting news for you this week, my friends. Now we are six! Smiles. Wonderful Magaly Guerrero has joined the Poets United team! She will host a prose prompt: Telling Tales with Magaly - a Pantry of Prose on the first Sunday of every month. We think this will offer an enlivening new direction for our site.

We are all pretty happy and excited about this new development, and hope you will enjoy this new feature. Magaly plans to invite "fiction, memoir, tales with life in them", and promises it will be "mind-nourishing". 

Her first prompt will be next Sunday, March 3rd. The link will stay up until late Tuesday, so you will have time to work on your pieces. Magaly has announced this development on her new blog, Magaly's Blog.  

On Monday, we will hear Men's Voices, with poems shared by  Ollie, the Tired Monk, Michael (Grapeling), Bjorn Rudberg and Marcoantonio. We hope you enjoy their wonderful words. On Wednesday, Sumana's prompt at Midweek Motif will be : Cloud. That sends lovely images through my mind.

Let's jump into the Pantry and see what goodies await. Link your one poem, and do visit your fellow poets, in the spirit of reciprocity. And let's start sharpening our prose pencils for next week!

  3. Sun is shining through the morning mist in our garden at almost nine o'clock. Today I'm going to continue cleaning the study and hope to get it finished before I leave for a visit to my daughter on Thursday. I only managed a corner yesterday! Enjoy Sunday wherever you are!

    1. Laura, I hope your move goes well. This year is a year of change for you. Let us know how you like your new place, once you're settled. Maybe you will write about it in Telling Tales!

  6. Good morning, Poets! We have such a windy day here today that I am wondering what all will blow past as the day goes on. Sigh!! Followed by, again, snow. The dogs hate going outside with this wind....the smallest one especially! If I didn't hang on to his leash I fear he could be the next thing sailing past. It will be really nice to have Telling Tales With Magaly next week! Variety is the spice of life, and I am sure Magaly will spice it up a bit! See you on the poetry trail this week.

    1. Things are grey and wet and cold here. And I'm right with your dogs--I don't want to go outside either.

  8. Thank you for the words, Sharry (and for hosting today). I'm so excited about next Sunday... and a bit nervous, too, if I'm honest. Still, grinning between excitement and terror there is a sense of, "It's going to be great!"

    Happiest readings, everyone.

  9. Lol, I cant imagine you terrified. (She says, grinning like a crocodile.) Just kidding. It will be great!

  10. Hello Sherry- I've been down with an ugly cold and it still has its grip on me, but trying to weather through. Happy Sunday, and Congratulations to Magaly!

  13. Oh I look forward to a prose prompt... I am in the process of writing a short story for an anthology, and might test out ideas for fiction with this prompt.

    1. Our ink-plans seem to be dancing the same tune. A group like this offers a rare opportunity for testing (and fun). I want both.

  14. Hello all! Watching it rain from my hospital window...I have aspiration pneumonia and am all hooked up to stuff as if I were a science experiement. I am eating yogurt like a mad woman hoping to avoid C-diff. Here is my haiku for my prompt over at Toads...

  15. You are a valiant soul, Toni, participating from your hospital bed. You are in the right place, they will fix you up. Yes, do eat yogurt! Thanks for linking and checking in. Hope you are soon better, and home.

  18. This is exciting news and a great way to add a new layer of writing. Magaly writes from her heart and has a strong spirit.

  21. How lovely to have exciting new things happening in our still-new year. What a joy to add Magaly to our team! I told her I probably wouldn't write to her prompts, being essentially a poet ... but you know, I am getting intrigued in advance, so maybe.... Meanwhile some more pretending-to-be-haiku from the extremely challenging NaHaiWriMo prompts.
    (Don't talk to me about wind. We just narrowly missed being hit by a cyclone. It did bring rain, that's something – though of course, in many places rather more than desired in one go.)
