Greetings, Friends! Today our photos are contributed by Rosemary Nissen-Wade. She has shared some photos she took during a recent visit to the "Sunshine Coast," which is one of Australia's holiday playgrounds. Beautiful photos, Rosemary. Thank you!
Well, we are moving along in December, and I will give everyone a bit of a 'heads up' for the upcoming holiday season. Poets United will be taking a short holiday break so that both staff and other poets have a bit of time to relax during this time. Poetry Pantry will be held as usual on December 20. The break will take place between December 21 and January 2. The usual schedule will resume again on Sunday, January 3, 2016, with Poetry Pantry. Hopefully many will have written a poem over our break to share with us the first Sunday of the new year.
Lots of interesting poems were written last week for Susan's prompt "energy / vitality" at Midweek Motif. Thank you, Susan, for coming up with some really unique and inspiring prompts. This week be sure to join us for Sumana's prompt - "colors." So many different directions to go with that one, so do a bit of thinking ahead. Smiles.
Be sure to take a look at Rosemary's feature this past week on Ingrid Jonker's poem, "Ladybird: A Memory of My Mother." Don't miss this interesting article & wonderful poem.
Tomorrow Sherry is featuring three poems of poets who regularly participate here at Poets United. I know you will recognize each of them. I hope you will enjoy the poems and the words of the poets!
With no further delay, please link your poem below. We hope you will stop in and say 'hello' as well. Be sure to enjoy the writings of other poets who have shared, as we all enjoy knowing our work has been read. Happy December to all.
