Poetry Pantry #129

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

Hello, Friends - Happy  Sunday before Christmas to you all. 

I want to take this opportunity to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah from all of us at Poets United.  Thank you for gifting us with your participation, poetry, and your selves during the year. We appreciate YOU.

 I do wonder how many people we will see today, as it is the Sunday before Christmas, but we are here for those of you who interested in sharing poetry.  I personally will be having a very busy Sunday, but I will eventually have time to spend time in the Pantry....later Sunday...so though I may not comment immediately, I will be there.  I look forward to seeing what many of you share this week. 

And, as always, please leave a comment in the comment section for us...and if you are an early poster, perhaps check back later and see what others have said!

 I have decided to continue to close the Pantry at 12 noon Central Time on Monday.  I think that should give people enough time to link their poem, and you can always make visits to other poems even AFTER Mr. Linky is closed. 

Please, if you link, plan on doing some reciprocating.  'Tis the season.  Fa La la la la!  Try to visit as many poets as you can, and if someone comments on your poem a reciprocal visit is a positive response.

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.

Also, if you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site.  It is one more way to stay in touch!

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 12:00 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.

  10. Lovely to see all of you in here today! I will be out on Christmas errands today, but will come back later this afternoon and evening, to enjoy your offerings, perhaps along with a "wee nip" of some Christmas cheer! Hee hee.

  11. I should be wrapping presents, but thought I would read poetry first! This is an older piece for me--I hope you like it.

  12. Today we had a huge snowfall. The world is just beautiful for this moment and I think it is important to rest here and renew ourselves after all the stress of the past weeks.
