The Poetry Pantry Is Now Open! - # 88

Made you nervous huh?

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.

  2. This week I'm sharing the poem that is probably closest to my heart. Back in September some dear friends of mine lost their seven month old baby girl, a devastating loss that happened with no warning at all. I wrote this the night of her funeral, definitely the most heart-wrenching thing I have ever written. She would have celebrated her first birthday this week.

    Have a great week everyone! And don't forget to let the people you care about know how you feel, life is much too fleeting and fragile, a lesson I'm being reminded of this week.

  4. Thanks again to Sherry, Poets United and all who pass through, for all the effort put in to this site and what it does. It was a great week. Todays link is a tired man's way to initiate a cheap smile. Night all...

  13. I'm sharing 'the lonely man goes to mass' which was inspired by a story our associate pastor, who's from Africa, told in his homily. It's posted on a different blog than my usual poetry blog, Opium Cactus Poetry Immersion.

  19. Hello everyone. This is my first time posting here. I learned about the site through one of Raven's posts, and I'm so glad I stumbled upon it. It looks like such a great forum and a supportive community. The poems I posted are not new, but I have only recently put them up on my blog. One I wrote while I was in Iraq, and the other is quite old actually, but it seemed appropriate to post them together due to their similar themes.

  21. I've never done 3 in a week -- likely not even two. A dam has burst -- what can I say. (I'll shut up until next time).
