Poetry Pantry - #118


The Poetry Pantry
2nd Chance Poems or 1st time shares
 
Hi Poets - How are you all doing this week? Hope you all have found poetic inspiration since we met here last Sunday.  As I said last Sunday, Autumn is often a reflective season.  For me many of my writings this last week continued to be seasonally inspired.  I will be anxious to read what you share and see what gave you pause to write about this past week. 

Even if you wrote your poem for another site originally, consider also including a link back to Poetry Pantry to spread the word and the joy of poetry and help others to discover our site. I have been heartened by the number of people who really have gotten into the habit of visiting a large number of fellow poets.  Please try to visit as many other poets as you can. 

If you see someone's name you don't recognize, stop in and say "Welcome."  And if you are a person new to this site, the best way to be known is to visit others' sites.  And don't forget to leave a comment here at this site after you link. 

And now...here is the procedure:  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 8:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.


There 3 simple rules:

1. Link only 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.

  8. Today I am recycling an old poem called (appropriately enough) "Recycled Poem". A little surrealism goes a long elephant :-)

  9. Having trouble leaving comments today (I hope this one goes through). I wanted to leave a couple of comments on posts so, I'll just give my praise here:

    Jack (#5) Very Intense!

    Heaven (#17) Well done, I love the imagination and detail in the way you described your "meal". Senual as always!

  14. I'm so happy to be here. My poem was inspired by the way during the holidays (and the rest of the year) people get more and more busy and then, when they look back at what they want to do, they can't do it, because, they already have something to do. I will try to look at other's poems as the day goes on!

  15. I finished this poem, inspired by "Wonder Wednesday," too late to post for it and so I post it here. This past week has been a fun one at Poets United!

  17. My poem came from some strong feelings about work on Friday, transferred in my imagination to a medieval battlefield...

  18. Good morning everyone! Good to see so many people here--

  19. Its interesting how inspiration comes from one object that is totally unrelated to what you are writing about. My poem, in terms of the creative thought process, followed this path.

  23. If there's any way to delete #36, that was a mistake, I had a glitch and the wrong poem is linked. Thank you :-)

  24. Left a poem that not many have seen... perhaps I should have expected that with its title.

  25. In this world, there are different people at different places, with different mind sets. But what brings us onto common ground and gives us a feeling of oneness and leads us to a higher self and spiritualism. What is it that makes us “Feel free” and “Feel Good” and thrills us at times? As it has been said earlier, it’s not the world that plays with you, it`s the music that plays with your world and takes you to a new world of endless fantasies.inspirational music
