Poetry Pantry #477

No copyright infringement intended.


We wish you Happy Easter on this special Sunday, if you are one of the many who celebrate this day. And a very happy and holy Passover to our friends in the Jewish community. 




Happy New Year wishes  to our dear friends in India! 


Happy Solstice / Happy Spring, from all of us at Poets United! We hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring Sunday, and that the snow is all gone. We don't want the Easter Bunny to get cold feet!





We had an interesting week at Poets United, discussing Magaly's new prose feature. Thank you for participating, and for being willing to stretch, if prose is a new direction for you. On Friday, Rosemary featured a very moving poem by Nancy Willard. Do scroll back, if you missed it. It is lovely. Next Friday I will introduce you to another Tofino poet, and there is a very cool short video to enjoy as well, a dance on the shore by the wild women of Chesterman Beach. Smiles. We hope you stop by and check it out.

This Monday, we are sharing a poem by Shaista Tayabali, the young woman who blogs at Lupus In Flight. We think you will be very moved by her poem about living with a serious illness. On Wednesday the Midweek Motif will be Almond Blossoms by Vincent Van Gogh. That sounds  intriguing.

For now, let's dive into the Pantry. Link your poem,  leave a comment to let us know how you're doing, and remember to visit your fellow poets in the spirit of reciprocity. Thank you for being here every Sunday. We wouldn't be here without you!

  1. Happy Sunday! This will be the last week I have time on my hands to keep up with NaPoWriMo, so it's a relief that it finishes on the day I attend a conference for exam moderators. After that I shall be busy. I will still write each morning, but maybe not quite so much for a couple of months. It's just a shame that exams always take place from May to July!

  2. Glad you will still be writing, Kim. Here on the west coast, it is just after midnight, am up late reading, so am checking in before i go to sleep. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, with your dear ones. We have sunshine,tulips and cherry blossoms here this weekend......and so many tourists. The beaches are packed.

  5. Happy Easter and Happy Passover to those who celebrate. I am glad to see an active Pantry today and will be around to read your words later...perhaps even tomorrow...due to the busy day I have ahead. We have a warm and sunny day today, which is a wonderful thing!

  7. This always posts on my Sunday night, so it will be some hours before I come back and finish reading everyone else's poems. But I will asap – it's always so rewarding.

    1. The time difference always astounds me, Rosemary. I arrive late at 8 a.m. here, when everyone has been and gone, lol. Amazing that today is already over where you are. Hope it was a good one. Am sure it was.

  8. My muse has been in a coma, so no entries these last few days. Just want to wish everyone a good weekend and for those who celebrate - Happy Easter or Passover.
    Sherry, thank you for your work, for hosting so graciously this wonderful blog. Please know how much you are appreciated. Happy Weekend!

    1. Myrna, my muse is sending your muse a bouquet of inky hugs, to see if she's tempted to wake up.

      Happiest weekend (and the rest of the week, too) to you and yours.
