Poetry Pantry - #115


The Poetry Pantry
2nd Chance Poems or 1st time shares
 

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 a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 9:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.

(Remember also that this is the week that changes will be taking place here at Poets United.  Sherry will highlight a Poem of the Week for us to enjoy later Monday evening.  Ella will begin with her "Wacky or Wonderful Wednesday" prompt VERY early Wednesday morning.  Rosemary's Friday "I Wish I'd Written This" sharing and Kim's Saturday "Classic Poetry" will remain on the same schedule". We are excited and enthused about the changes and hope you will be too!)


There 3 simple rules for Poetry Pantry:

1. Don’t link to more than 1 poem per week.  If you link more than one, anything after #1 will be removed.

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.  I find that people who leave comments tend to be more participatory.  They wish to be part of the community.  A little of this goes a long way.  It feels good for all.

  3. Well today I'm offering up a strange little poem. It's one of a series named with roman numerals because as fragments, real titles would to be too explicit. The numbers are quite random (first thought best thought). Might be too minimalist for some :-)

  4. This poem is the result of a personal challenge laid on me by Hedgewitch to write in the form of ghazal. If you have already read it and left your thoughts, I thank you.

  6. I have a weblog on Basho (a classical haiku poet and - master) in which i am looking closer to a haiku by Basho. In every episode i try to write a haiku inspired by the one of Basho. I look forward to your visits and comments.

  11. Wow, it is morning where I am and look at all of you. I didnt post a poem this week. Some of you have expressed an interest in my grandmother's scrapbook so I posted a piece from 2010 with old photos from it......anyone not interested, feel most welcome to just click on by :) Those times fascinate me. Old photos hold so many untold stories. I wish that I had written them all down decades ago. I'll be around to read your offerings very soon, am still trying to get out of my inbox!
