Poetry Pantry - #119


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.  It wasn't as easy for me to find inspiration in nature last week as it was the week before. We are really in the grips of Autumn now where I live.  A lot of the colorful beauty has been replaced by brown leaves and bare trees.  However, I was able to write anyway; and I hope you were also. I will be anxious to read what you share . 

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.  Admittedly if I have visited people who have not returned visits  or who never visit other people's poetry, I may not find my way to their blog.

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.  If you are someone who links on the second day, the best thing for you to do is visit others' sites as well; and hopefully they will then return your visit. And don't forget to leave a comment here at this site after you link.  Even if just to say hi to your poet friends.

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.

  3. Happy Sunday to all! I'm sorry I have nothing newer than my Wednesday poem to share. Many thanks to those who have already visited and left their thoughts on Toska, if not I'd be happy if you stopped by.

  10. Hello all, This pantry I am revisiting Poetry for Wounded Warriors. Posting ends on Dec. 21, 2012. If you have a poem about soldiers, veterans, healing, appreciation, etc. please post them here. Please be resprctful and please no politics or anti-war sentiment. This project is to produce love and compassion for the Warriors and their families, not the politicians and their lobbys. May God bless our Nation's brave!

    1. Heh, Bradley, Poetry Pantry is a site for posting one's INDIVIDUAL poems rather than other sites with Mr. Linky links. I understand your good intent; but Poetry Pantry is not the place....

  12. Hi everyone,
    Sort of a very-short-story poem this week. Nothing like a bit of variety in a pantry!

    :-)

  13. Mary,

    I am back for a visit after a few weeks of absence.
    A new poem which might just test the sincerity of The Pantry itself.
    I shall visit others and reciprocate as per the spirit:)
    Happy Autumnal Sunday,
    Eileen
