Pantry of Poetry and Prose #3

Autumn snow, Pinterest 
Snow danced in the light, choreographed by November as days slide slowly toward winter. Hello everyone! This is Sanaa and I will be your hostess for the Pantry of Poetry and Prose this Sunday. 

This week, Susan intrigued us all with her Midweek Motif, "Authenticity," to which there were several great responses! It's amazing how a prompt can elicit different emotions in people. 

Rosemary delighted us with her "Wild Fridays: Poems of the Week," where she featured our very own Audrey Howitt and had a lovely conversation. Do scroll back and check it out in case you have missed it!

For now, I invite you to share your entries, as Poets United welcomes both poetry and prose (i.e. stories, articles, essays) feel free to link anything new or old and relish in the work of others. Also, if you opt to share prose then please keep it to 369 words or fewer.

Optional: For those of you whose muse desires something, here is a beautiful poem by Maya Angelou. Remember to give credit if you decide to write inspired by it.

And now, without further ado, let us dive into the Pantry! Looking forward to grabbing a cup of coffee and reading you all! See you on the trail!

  1. Thank you for hosting, Sanaa! I love the picture of snow falling past leaves. And Maya Angelou's poem is beautiful indeed, and touching; nearly made me cry.

  2. Yes, thank you for hosting the Pantry, Sanaa. I love the image of the snow falling. I will catch up tomorrow (likely late in the afternoon) as has become my Sunday routine (with folks coming and going around here (on their Sunday/day-off) throughout the late morning/early afternoon hours).

  4. Thank you for hosting, Sanaa, and for the lovely image of snow on autumn leaves. We had frost this morning and the washing was stiff on the line! I've shared a 'fusion-ku' Troiku I posted on Carpe Diem. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, poets!

  11. Hello all, and thank you, Sanaa, for hosting this morning. I agree with Magaly - I like my snow far away...or on the local ski hills, just a little bit far away and available for play!
