POETRY POTLUCK - Celebrations and Festivities!!!!

Welcome Monday... Welcome Poetry Potluck!!!!


Hello and WELCOME back to the 16th and delightful week of Poetry Potluck!!! :-)  

We (Amanda and Kavita) are as pleased as ever to welcome you here... Before we break for the New Year, let's rejoice with some Celebrations and Festivities!!!!!

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, 8pm (CST). So you will have 72 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 ending this successful year with loads of fun and frolic, let's enter into a brand new year with thoughts and insights on a new Journey and the Road Ahead!!! And since we will all be out PARTYING next weekend, you will have not one, but TWO WEEKS 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 write on... Thanks for joining in and supporting your fellow poets here at OUR favorite Poetry Potluck!!!

Wish you all a very HAPPY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!! See you in 2011!! :)

A Christmas Sonnet

it is neither more nor less wonderful
than Christmases past how can I compare
apples to oranges I don’t really care
what the answer is anyway the pull
of the season is irresistible
and it sweeps me along in tow singing
carols with wanton abandon so bring
it on everything snow on the steeple
with holly and ivy and Santa Claus
the parties and even shopping don’t pause
to ask if it’s ok it is for that’s
the magic of this time of year my hat’s
off to Christmas ever shiny and new
and always perfect whatever we do

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
By our lovely and talented Marilynn... Thank you so much, MM...

If we can only see Christmas through the eyes of a child, it would be filled with laughter and joy.

kaykuala said...

Can someone explain to me how come there's a cross next to my name at #104? You can still go to my blog though

(when I clicked on the cross and clicked OK, my posting is deleted. So I just let it be)

Uncle Tree said...

Jingle said...

Kaykuala,

a cross on your link only implies that you are the one who entered your poem on this collection, when I link my poems, I got crosses as well...

nothing particular, thanks for the questions...
Happy Potluck!

Mine 1st post is wordless, but it features the Potluck theme of Celebrations and Festivities.

The 2nd is more traditonal.

My entry is about advent. In my community, we have an advent festival. I know it is unusual, but there you have it!

Then, befitting the potluck-y portion of events, I offer up a couple of poems from the past...
