Welcome to OpenLinkNight folks! This is your opportunity to link 1 poem of your choice as this is no prompt-day. For those who missed the Mr Linky deadline the past week or this Tuesday’s poetics about “The photography of Sharon Knight”, this is also your opportunity to share your poem. Also, our Haibun Monday about Winter Moon is also open the whole week.
We are in the midst of a chilly winter in Canada. Here is beautiful quote which always remind me of the beauty and strength of our spirit:
“In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
Albert Camus in Lyrical and Critical Essays
We want to express our gratitude to those who have already bought the dVerse Anthology, Chiarosocuro, Darkness and Light. The book is available for ordering on Amazon both in Europe and in North America. Your support goes a long way in sustaining our community.
To join us for Thursday’s OpenLinkNight, which happens every other week, here’s how to join:
See you at the poetry trail. ~Grace~
Welcome to OLN everyone! I hope you are having a good day or night ~

Hello… I was in a hurry to write my poem…. but it did become something in the end anyway… Happy and we are approaching the end of the week… just one day to go.
Me too… just wrote during my lunch break. So happy the weekend is coming soon!
Hi Grace! Hi dVerse Poets! Although it is still very cold here, the only white stuff I’ve seen in the garden is a snowdrop. It was very misty here all day, grey and dreary. I’ve seen the awful weather in other parts of the world on the television and my thoughts are with all those people who are suffering in one way or another. Let’s warm each other up with some poetry!
The cold is receding a bit but its still chilly here Kim ~ I like that – lets warm up each other with poetry and some hot tea to boot! Take care!
You too, Grace!

Thanks for hosting, Grace. I really liked that Camus quote. You and all those in cold country–stay warm! As for those of you down under, stay cool! I have a dog to get to the vet and will return to read in a few hours.
I am hitting the trail in a few minutes too Victoria ~ Hope the dog is fine with the vet’s visit ~ Take care !

Happy OLN everyone and thank you for hosting tonight Grace. I love the Camus quote and enjoy reading his work. I have linked a modern western haiku tonight and would love some hot chai if you have it :o) xxx

Good afternoon everyone! Fantastic quote, Grace! It’s about -40 with the wind here (-40C is the same as -40F for my American friends). Glad to be indoors!
So nice to see you Bryan ~ Too cold for me but I am glad to be indoors too ~ Keep warm ~

Sweet–I was able to get a new episode of BLACKTHORNE ready to post for today. A series of medical issues has kept me downstairs, and away from the computer for several weeks, but I will join in the 3 weekly postings when I can. I love the new Anthology; nice job, folks.
Glenn…we were missing you. Sorry to hear about the medical issues and hope you are feeling stronger ~ Take care of your health !
Thank you for hosting us, Grace 🙂 love that quote by Camus. I’ll be sure to hold on to it in difficult times when I am feeling overwhelmed. I ll be back to read and comment in the morning ❤️
Lovely to see you Sanaa. Hope you are well and taking it easy ~
Thank you so much for the giving us the opportunity to post here on your great blog!

Hi, Grace! Hi, fellow poets! I’m doing a quick post and run, with a pure promise to come back and read, respond, and rejoice (as appropriate). I look forward to seeing what everyone brought to the buffet.
Hi Charley! See you at the poetry trail!
Sounds good! Thanks for hosting, Grace.

Hello everyone, I’m linking one of my favorite poems about the mountains I saw from my home in Tucson. I’m still getting to know the ones in the Phoenix area.
Hello and nice to meet you! I will be checking it out!
Good Evening, I could use a nice pint of winter ale while I read. I’ll see you out there following your tracks.
Hello Truedessa ~ Let’s share that winter ale while reading poems ~ Take care ~
Grace, I really enjoyed your poem today. Life and love on a dull gray train. Sort of like an overcast winter day with flowers blooming in the house.
Google drives me crazy. I post my comment and it takes my name etc. Then when I publish it all goes away with no explanation. My apologies to all of you who have google and won’t let tell you how much I like your poems.

I have not found any other way to leave a comment on blogger than to use my google identity… 🙂
Interestingly, it does go through on a couple of the google users’ posts.
runs home. darn it! I’m late again. Pub’s empty.
Some are us are reading through the links, smiles ~ For me, I take my time to read the poems and not rush it. Weekends are the best time to catch up on my reading ~
Me too. It’s been fun reading people’s writings
Thanks for hosting! I’m catching up with prompts with this one. 🙂
Me too 🙂 Thanks for joining us !

Hello! In Seattle, it’s chillier than usual, but I’m not complaining at all. Could be much worse!
I love my copy of the anthology! Still thumbing through it.
Hello Barry ~ Cold and chilly here too but the weekend is tomorrow, smiles ~ Glad that you are enjoying the anthology ~
