The Poetry Pantry Is Now Open! - #54

Happy Father's Day!



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.

  1. Odd that I link chauvinistic poems for Father's day. It was iront I swear and not intent but I was digging up old ones and those are what bubbled to the surface. Can't wait for another great Pantry always enjoy what everyone offers!

  33. Poetic Aside Wednesday prompt was two fold to write about a person you haven't seen in at least 3 months and about a moment you shared with this person.

    I direct you to August Loamed
    although there are others there as well.
