Poetry Pantry - #121


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

Hi Poets - Happy Almost Halloween to you all.  How are you doing this week? Hope you all have found poetic inspiration since we met here last Sunday. And hope your life has brought you good things.  It is always nice to look forward to spending time with you sharing poetry on Sunday.

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.  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.

  1. My goodness, second poem in the pantry. Maybe there is an advantage in being 12 hours ahead of GMT!
    To all those on the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S I hope that storm withers!

    Love & peace,
    Simon

  10. It's a very grey mid-day in the Philadelphia area. I posted a cemetery poem--not quite Halloween--and will be back later to read and enjoy.
