POETRY POTLUCK - Idols, Role models and Mentors!

Monday's back, people!! And so are we!!


This week is SPECIAL indeed!! This week, we celebrate the Silver Jubilee of Poetry Potluck! YES!! 25 weeks into this awesome journey!! WITH YOU!!! And today, we (Aleza and Kavita) are as delighted as ever to welcome you back here... On this special occasion, let's look back, ponder over and show a little appreciation towards our Idols, Role models and Mentors... Won't you join us? 

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 some serious contemplation and gratitude this week, let's get on the lighter side of things and delve into the world of Food, Drink and Indulgences.... ooohhhh!! But that's next week! So you 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!!!

Sitting pretty-
On a glass shelf,
Figurine porcelain;
Oh so Fragile!
Placed delicately,
As a masterpiece-
Poets’ Muse,
Viewers’ Delight.
Timeless Beauty,
A great rarity;
Legendary Tales-
Enchased in History..
Celebrated across-
With Joy n Pride,
Critiques’ Laud;
Worshipped as God!
~*~*~*~*~*~*

Thank you, Olivia, for gracing us with this lovely poem on our 25th... it REALLY means a great deal to us, sweet friend...

It feels good to celebrate with you on the Silver Jubilee of Poetry Potluck!

Olivia that's a masterpiece! :)

JamieDedes said...

Thanks, dear Kaviat, and Aleza. Wonderful! And a photo of my favorite person tops it! :-D Thank you!

I didn't go with the theme. The muse got me tangled in one of her webs last night. You'll see. Phew!

I linked in a second post, but it's not my poetry. It's my dear friend, Ann Emerson's, poetry. Those who haven't read her work yet are in for a treat.

Happy Potluck everyone.

Peace -

JamieDedes said...

P.S.: Thanks for posting Olivia's poem. Love it. Love her.

Thanks, Olivia, for sharing.

Poem on ...

Kudos Olivia on the poem, nice job as always everyone. I finished my visits (6), most on Blogspot, (scary as some of these authors do not visit WP in turn)

Happy Monday!

Greetings, thanks for the invite, and happy 25th. Nothing like beginning on a silver day. The mentor I've selected is my kid brother -- because he was the first in our immediate family to die, nearly 3 years ago. He's scouting out the Great Great Outdoors for the rest of us. - Brendan
