Poetry Pantry #152






Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week. Hope you each had a poetic week & also will share one of your poems here.  The picture above is that of a peacock.  I took it when we visited the zoo this past week.  I think it is mating season, as a peahen was frolicking just out of sight!!

This is one of my favorite spaces to post.  I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your ONE poem.   Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others.  (Several of you forgot about that aspect last week....sigh.) That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.

Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new.  Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends!  Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?

Also, don't forget to visit Poets United other days of the week.  For example, every Wednesday Kim posts a new "Verse First" prompt.  Hope you will join us there as well!  Sherry Blue Sky does a feature (it varies) on Monday, and Rosemary Nissen-Wade does "I Wish I'd Written This" every Friday!

If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site.  It is one more way to stay in touch!

And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here:  Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.

Enjoy!

    1. Its going to take more time for rains there, I believe. Here its been raining almost continuously for 3 days. Roads are more like ponds. Last monsoon we had boat service through roads, literally!

    1. Great, JC. Glad to hear that. I know you had not commented on mine for a few weeks. Smiles. And when I make the rounds through people's submissions there are some people who I seldom, or never, see. And after a while morale goes down for those who are reciprocal. And this is not a good thing...so....I would like to change that.

    2. i feel you mary...having run my own places for years, it is the same most anywhere you go...its like the old 80/20 rule...though usually its closer to 30/70 in blogworld i have found...its about the norm...and i think it comes from the culture in the world in general reflected...

      you do so much ad give so freely of your time mary...know i appreciate it no matter the venue...and the efforts to try to change it...just dont want you to get eat up by it in the process...its not an easy labor...

  14. Oh it is a feast in here this morning! I will get around to you even if it takes a while, as I have a four year old to amuse today and we are going out into the sunshine. I posted one I had forgotten about but rather like - the post is a bit long, sorry about that. I was on a roll! Mary, thanks for hosting the pantry every week. It's my fave feature, too.

  15. The peacock is so beautiful and so loud, I remember them down in Florida when we took the kids to Disney - we camped and they always made us aware of their presence! :)

  17. Mary,

    I have been in my garden today catching up on lots of planting, which is late because of the poor spring weather. Today was a pleasant day and so, my garden had first preference with my time...Now though it is time to post my new poem for The Sunday Pantry...Influenced by constant headline grabbing stories!!

    Best wishes for a good new month and week,
    Eileen

    I shall visit Blogs and comment over the next few days...Thank you to those who kindly visit me:)

  19. OMG. I see now that I re-posted this only a month ago. So sorry, kids. See? NO short term memory. At. All. And a long poem to boot. Sigh. Just back from a very tiring birthday party for little kids.....trying to get around to read and comment now.........

  20. That's a pretty awesome peacock photo. I've seen them before, but never with such a beautiful fan of their feathers.

  24. Peacocks amaze me, they are such a miracle for color and physics-the way the feathers are all arranged and supported. Beautiful :-)
