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.
