Poetry Pantry #486
Ms Turtle looks so peaceful and beautiful, swimming along. May she always find clean, safe waters to swim in. Last week seemed to go by extra quickly, not like a tortoise, more like a hare on roller skates!
On Friday, in the Living Dead series, Sanaa offered a fascinating account of the life and work of Mirza Ghalib, the Urdu poet who lived in the 1700's. It was most interesting. I love the work of the mystical poets from those early times. He excelled in the ghazal, a form that intrigues me. It is worth scrolling back, if you missed it.
On Monday, our featured guests will be Rosemary Nissen-Wade, Carrie Van Horn and Marian Kent, with poems that will knock your socks off. And on Wednesday, Sanaa will be guest hosting at Midweek Motif with the prompt: Perfume. Cool.
Let's top up our coffee, maybe add a little extra cream, since it is Sunday, after all, and we can take our morning slow; let's dive in to the Pantry and see what wonders everyone has contributed to the feast. Please remember to visit your fellow poets in the spirit of reciprocity.

I could just put the turtle video up and simply exist while watching it. Perfect for Sunday morning contemplation. :)ReplyDelete
The turtle, at least, is peaceful, since she doesnt get the daily news. I just hope we can keep her environment turtle-friendly.ReplyDelete
Hello All and Happy Sunday! Sharing one I wrote for the Toads prompt. Have a fabulous day.ReplyDelete
I love sea turtles! Have volunteered a couple of times to keep people out of their hatching area and then to see the little ones scrabbling to the ocean. What fun.ReplyDelete
Beautiful turtle! I got so busy enjoying people's poems, nearly forgot to leave a comment. It is now Monday morning in Australia; hope those of you who are still in the weekend are having a good one.ReplyDelete
