The Poetry Pantry Is Now Open! - #27

Please let us know what you think of or color scheme compromise.  We value your opinion and we think its better for all.

We recently removed all Blogs that were inactive for 4 months or more.  If your blog was one of those blogs please let us know once you are active again and we gladly add you back to our blog roll and member list.  We just want to ensure that we have a very active site that is not bogged down by innactive or dead links.


The Poetry Pantry
2nd Chance Poems or 1st time shares

Anything goes!! All Poems, all Poets, All Week!!

Do you have a poem you would like to share? Something that you just felt inspired to write and want others to read. Perhaps it’s a poem that didn’t get as much exposure on your blog as you would have liked. Maybe it’s a poem that you wrote a long time ago that you would like people to revisit. That’s what this section of Poets United is for.

Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to anything you want us to read, anything at all related to poetry or prose found on your own poetry blogs. It will remain open all week so that you can show us your writings and thoughts. You can post links weekly should you chose to do so. What poetry you put here is up to you so don't be afraid to share with us!!

There 3 simple rules:

1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.

2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.

3. Leave a comment after you have posted your link.

  7. Three from me this week, two written from a prompts and one just because. :-)

    Happy Sunday everyone. :-)


    I really like the black and white centre panel too. Very crisp and clear.

    Robb, if you look down the right column you will see that the black writing in 'the recent comments' is not very readable. Don't know how you fix that? I had the same trouble on one of my sites I think.

  9. I like the grey, and the green and the orange, but to be quite honest I don't like the brown background.

  16. good compromise, most sites don't bother to remove the inactive which makes lurking a bit of a drag, especially when you aren't looking to lurk!

  17. Poets United,

    I have posted a poem, which may capture my mid-winter mood right now!

    Warmest wishes, Eileen

  18. Poets United,
    I have chosen to add my poem from the Thursday Think Tank, written about Fire.
    I was away on holiday and offline for one week, thus why I did not post a poem last week. Today I am on catch-up mode, while suffering with the joys of winter flu!

    Best Sunday Wishes, Eileen

  20. I posted this piece a little while ago that I'm linking to here. It's not my best, but I'm still struggling with that writer's block.

    I really like the color scheme. It works well.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This color scheme is far superior to the purple, but I find the text within the brown a little difficult on the eyes. Thanks for all you do with poetry!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I had forgotten about this one.

  23. A Model by the Window Composed

  28. Mino-giizhigad~ Good day :)

  29. As the hours ticked away before catching my flight home the words "time goes fast" were said to me. and it just stuck with me wrote something quick may redo it later but spur of the moment write.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wait a tick! I posted 4 - what was I thinking?! Guess I got carried away :-) I just HAD to share the last one, which just came to me for the world to read. Thanks!

  31. Here’s my latest limerick and Limerick-Off. Everyone’s welcome to write a limerick using the same first line: Vain Limerick

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I look forward to reading everyone's work in a little bit. This is a poem I whipped together for a friend's Sharing is Caring event. The prompt was "your first job and what you learned from it".

  35. I linked three poems here that are on my same blog page. They were all written in response to the same prompt, which was "She took another day away" I like the portrait as well of a woman I found running a shop in downtown Los Angeles. Tried to make the picture mysterious. The photo is not related to the poems.

  36. I thought this would kill two birds with one stone, as you might say!

  37. glad to be linking up with Poets United again...like the new look, except for maybe the orange on brown, for me it is hard to read.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi!

    My first time here. Link is to something hybrid -- consider it not quite 'poem', not quite 'prose poem', not quite 'flash fiction', but I guess I could argue it any of those ways, given my zest for explanation . . . if anyone is so 'genrist' to care?

  39. Like Jinksy ( who has introduced me to this site) I also thought I would kill two birds with one stone!
