POETRY POTLUCK - Peace, Relaxation and Spirituality...

A HUGE HI to all you wonderful people!! 


We (Amanda and Kavita) are so happy to welcome you once again this week to Poetry Potluck... Without saying much, let's just sink into some Peace, Relaxation and Spirituality this week... Aaahhh.. sounds blissful.. doesn't it?

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!! Now that we have a clear and stress free mind, how about giving a thought to our Aims, Goals and Ambitions? You will have one entire 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 write on... Thanks for joining in and supporting your fellow poets here at OUR favorite Poetry Potluck!!!

Journey...

alone in the shadows
of eternal stillness
on my journey of life
in fragile dreams
stretched out forever
in the light of angels
as they gently whisper
I search for answers
beneath and beyond
Utopia of peace
a moment in time
as I spread my wings
and begin to fly
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

By yours very truly, Amanda... :-)

Thanks to you both, Amanda and Kavita, for your fine work on this. And i love the topic, which is always timely.

This week I've posted some old poems and I am working on two long pieces on Egypt, which I think are important. One is up. The other goes up tomorrow.

Feeling better too, so hope to get lots of visits in.

Thanks for your lovely poem, Amanda. A gift to us. You will be sorely missed.

Hugs! xoxo

I have been so fortunate to find Jingle and all the poets here. Being a part of this community has pushed me to explore more poetry as a writer and as a reader -- thank you for your support and hope you enjoy the 3 poems I posted this week.
Looking forward to visiting some of these wonderful poets!

This poem is beautiful. I spent the weekend on soul retreat, so the topic could not be more timely.

My first poem - To You, is literally to you - all of you Jingle Poetry, Potluck and all of you lovelys out there! :)

My pleasure is a funny little poem I thought I'd share.

And Different Perspectives was inspired by Eric Bubba Alder after his comments on my poem 'Affair' last week.

I hope you all enjoy reading mine as much as I will yours :)

Jingle said...

It is cool to see your creative mind work wonders and magic.

Glad to see poets inspire each other via different poetry forms.

keep it up.

Thanks for coming.

Happy Potluck.

Many thanks for linking me up last week. Apologies for not posting this week I loved the theme but this last week hasn't inspired me to write a piece of poetry I'm afraid. :O)

The Reason You Come said...

That's a beautiful poem by Amanda. It is relaxing and makes me feel that all is good with the world. :)

As for my poem, I meant to post earlier, but this is proving to be a busy week at work. (Also, I seem to be doing more layout changes than actual blogging - must stop!)

Thank you to Jingle Poetry, all the administrators of this wonderful site for giving me the opportunity to present some of my poetry! I have SO enjoyed reading the many submissions! Wish I had time to read them all! As I learn to navigate the site better, I will be participating more. Until then, I send you all a big virtual hug and I bow to the extraordinary talent I have found here!
