The Poetry Pantry Is Now Open! - #97


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. I first read 'Dead Man's Poetry' when I happened upon Nan's Poetry Pantry entry last week. I was fascinated by the genre, and have written three poems this week exploring the concept. I hasten to add that my interpretation may not be 100% accurate, as Marvin Bell envisaged, but I offer my take on it. These may not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you are interested, please take a look and leave your thoughts.

  10. I'm in the midst of the Poetic Asides April Poem A Day Challenge. Churning them out so fast, it's hard to know how well they're working, so I have linked to three of the most recent for feedback - thanks, folks!

  12. Thanks so much for making this happen, and sorry I forgot to comment last time. I do read and like so many works on here, but I don't comment much because I'm shy. :b

  16. I'm always amazed to see the numbers of folk who leave a comment, never tallies with the hordes on the linky list- are people lazy, or thoughtless?
    As ever, thanks to PU for this meeting ground.

  25. Poets United has blessed me with opportunities not shared anywhere else. I love the site and the poets who make up such a diverse global community of writers. Peace and Blessings to everyone!

  26. A late and small entry. If I had a millionth the talent of Rumi I might write this..

  27. John, peace right back atcha! Love your work. Simon, you are on my radar now, will bop by. And as far as comparing yourself to others, don't worry. You write YOUR truth, and we are all influenced by the poets who move us most. For me (if you read my poem you'll see why), it's Carl Sandburg. Perhaps an odd choice for a woman, but not for an activist. Peace, Amy

  28. Been trying to bend my way this year into a difficult poetic corner: politics. Without being preachy and without being partisan.

    It's a task.
