POETRY POTLUCK - Buildings, Landmarks and Monuments

It's Monday - let's go POTLUCKing!!!!

Hello and WELCOME back to yet another SOLID week of Poetry Potluck!!!

We (Amanda and Kavita) are as pleased as ever to welcome you here... This week, we shall model Buildings, Landmarks and Monuments!!! Gather up those bricks (ideas and words), and churn up the cement (poems)!! :)

Register yourself (with your name and the link to your potluck entry) using InLinkz below, and leave a comment with a pointer to your post! It would be great if you could link back to us on your blog!!! Once you are done with this, visit other participants (at least 6), read their entries, comment, AND ENJOY!!!   Of course, you can always submit any poem of your choice as well...

Remember: Every week, InLinkz will be up on Sunday, at 8pm (CST), and will stay open till Wednesday, 8am (CST). So you will have 60 hours to share your poem with us...COOL huh?!! Also, if you aren't new to Poetry Potluck, please note that we may not send you weekly reminders. So, it would be awesome if you could add us to your Blogroll or Favorites, so that you can stay updated with the happenings on our site!! :))

Flash Forward!! After this "engineered" week, we shall once again get back to abstracts and intangibles. So, the theme for next week will be "Moods, Feelings and Emotions".. You will have a week to prepare your poem for this theme.. :) And if you are unable to submit a poem ON the theme, relax... Send in an older poem you would love to share with us...

And now, LET'S GET STARTED with this week's potluck!!!! Enjoy the VIDEO here and let those constructive creative spirits flow!!! Thanks for joining in and supporting your fellow poets and our favorite Poetry Potluck!!!

Brick and Mortar

Today, there is reverence
Adulation of the details
For those intricate designs
Which lend beauty to the art
Admiration for the structure
That lends recognition to
The city; a dream, a vision
That turned to reality much
To the delight of its citizens
But let’s not forget the minds
That brought forth the idea
Whose hard work, dedication
Made it what it is this day
For the vision of the artisan
To craft the monument
Brought the accolades it gets
Remember the foundations
To this towering structure

By our awesome friend, Leonnyes - Thanks a bunch, Leo!!!

Here is my poem for the potluck (so far)

Gigi Ann said...

Hi Jingle,

Thanks for the visit to my blog. I just started writing poetry for the fun of it, therefore, no meditating when you read it, but I am enjoying it.

Other Mary said...

My poem feels not done yet. Any suggestions are welcome.

Amias (ljm and liquidplastic) said...

Blog world is so small, yet so massive ... see so many folks I know. Nice poem Leo!

Bubba said...

I posted this one awhile back, but it fits the theme and I'm too busy to write a new one right now.

Heather said...

I keep trying to add my link above and it's not working ;(

Try this?

It's an audio file, maybe that's why.
It's me reading When Freedom Stands..
re: the future One World Trade Center.

Love the potluck and so glad that that Amanda, Kavita and Ji give us the opportunity to participate!



Abigail Pearl Pope said...

oh man, GREAT prompt. Normally I can't just churn out a poem off the top of my head on someone else's choice of topic, but this one inspired me. I wrote it, edited it and submitted it, bang bang boom, and it took me no more than an hour!

Lovely work. The foundation is the key!

kaykuala said...

I have just submitted an old poem on 'Kashmir' as a first timer without realising the theme is 'monument'. It may not be relevent.

I'll just take this as a try-out to effect the link for other later poems.


Jingle Poetry At Washington State said...

S. Sharp, Kaykuala, welcome....

No problem if it is unrelated to the theme..

Will read you soon.
