Poetry Pantry - #109


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 through WEDNESDAY so that you can show us your writings and thoughts. You can post a link weekly should you choose 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 1 poem per week.
(from your poetry blog - not another meme, please)

2. Please visit several other poems linked here when you link to yours. Please
don't just link and run, waiting for others to visit you.

3. Leave a comment after you have posted
your link. We enjoy having you say 'hi.'

  4. Good morning Mary,
    Just added one that slipped through the net earlier.
    Just wanted to say how important thoughtful comments are: just received some on another post, that made such a difference. I was getting rather downhearted last night and finding them this morning was wonderful. Our words travel to unknown destinations and can perform miracles unseen.

    1. Indeed this is so true. We are all people at these blogsites; and truly our words, as we reach out across the blogosphere, can really make a difference in people's lives! Thank you for your comment.

  5. Hello everybody. A southern hemisphere winter shows signs of an early spring. Or is a false promise?

  6. I am adding one that I wrote yesterday, which has 'grown on me' since the time I wrote it. Do you ever notice that some poems do that? I wasn't very present at Poetry Pantry last Sunday because I was vacationing for a week in Germany, and last Sunday I was enjoying Munich. Thus, if you didn't see much of me, that was why, even though Poetry Pantry didn't miss a beat.

    I am looking forward to seeing what you share, but this site is not a place for you to merely drop your link and wait for visits from others. Please visit several other poets as well in our community. And if a new person visits you, return the visit and make a new friend. That feels good for both!!

  7. Hi Mary - Yes what a good point you make - I know I have made so many "new friends" and found such riches along the way! :))))

  10. I am so grateful I found this site. My favorite part is reading everyone's work. There are so many great poems out there, poems I never would have seen otherwise. I get many ideas, inspiration, and it is exciting to know others will read mine. I've been posting on my blog for a year now and only in the last few weeks did I find this marvelous online community and the difference in my work is phenomenal. I didn't care if no one was reading, but now my writing is exploding and I'm learning so much, which I appreciate the most. I found my people! No one I know wants to talk about poems. And it's fun too! Thanks everyone. Thank you for your visits and I look forward to reading yours.

  11. We have an opportunity to show our interest in poetry at the NPR Poetry Games. Read the poems and vote.

  12. Mary,

    I have been greatly impressed by The Olympic Games taking place in London. The personal endeavours of all those involved, especially the 70,000 volunteers who have made the games a great success,with the unselfish generosity of their unpaid time.
    Of course, the dedication of each competitor is worthy of a few words....Thus my poem.

    Eileen
