The 50th Poetry Pantry Is Now Open!!

Yes this is number 50 and we hope to have hundreds more!!


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.

  3. Congrats on #50, nearly a year old... keep going!!! Writer's Island has now published our writing/poetry prompts since 2007, and know how difficult it can be to endure. Prompt and poetry sites come and go out here in cyberspace, so it is great to see you are committed to longevity Robb... ;)

  5. Happy 50!

    I went back a bit. It's not the best, but I was intrigued with the story of the woman who lived in her car with a menagerie of moggies.

  8. I've been on a bit of a roll this weekend, so I've posted two poems - both with a similar premise of words and inspiration. Read one or both, drop a line, and have a happy Sunday :)

  9. Hope I'm not breaking an unwritten rule by posting a Guest Blogger. But she's my first Guest Blogger so I want to break out the fancy linens.

  23. A fun little ditty from about a year ago that actually didn't get the exposure it deserves (in my humble opinion) about all the celebs flocking to REHAB!!!

  24. Fifty eh? That's a lot of sundays.

  25. Erm... odd! One of the poems won't load! The middle link works. These were the first two poems I wrote on my blog and are my thoughts on dementia. The one that is loaded is about my mum. The first poem is below it (on the blog) if you wan't to read it.

    A question I asked myself, and thus came the poem. I hope, you find one of your desires in those lines!
