Macy's Holiday Windows
Downtown Chicago - 2016
|The Outside of Macy's|
Greetings, Friends. Welcome to another Poetry Pantry, where we all have the opportunity to share our poetry and enjoy the poetry shared by others.
The photos this week were taken by me last weekend when I spent much of a day in downtown Chicago. Macy's Department Store decorates their windows every year. I remember sharing them with you last year as well, when they had a "Peanuts" theme. They really go through a lot of work, as each year has a unique theme.
Thank you, Rosemary, for the wonderful feature Friday on Leonard Cohen's poem "A Kite is a Victim." This is a Cohen poem that I was unfamiliar with, and I really enjoyed this particular share. Look back if you haven't seen it.
Monday Sherry has a great update for us with the poet Karin Gustafson. Don't miss it.
Wednesday Susan's Midweek Motif will be "social stigma." You might want to think ahead about things that divide us, reasons we are discriminated against. One subject you may want to explore is HIV/AIDS, but don't limit your thoughts. Give it some thought ahead of time, or wait for Susan's explanation on Wednesday, along with some wonderful example poems.
Don't hesitate to email me if you have some photos to feature in the Pantry. We all enjoy looking at photos from different areas of the world.
Planning ahead, Poets United will be taking a holiday break, as we have been doing for the past few years. We will have Poetry Pantry on December 18 & then go on break for two weeks. We will resume our regular schedule again with Poetry Pantry on January 1, ringing in the new year with you!
With no delay, let's share poetry. Link your one poem below. Stop in and say hello in comments. Visit the poems of other poets who post. Thanks to all of you who take part in the Pantry and in our other features. Without you, our site would not exist!
