Poetry Pantry #132

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

Greetings, Poets!   Wonderful to see you this Sunday again. And I am looking forward to seeing what you are bringing to the Pantry to share today!

We are sorry about the technical glitches with Kim's Wednesday prompt.  The glitch is worked out, and it won't happen again.  Kim was new with Mr. Linky and then was heading out of town.  If you were not able to link your poem Wednesday, consider linking today in Poetry Pantry.

We have one more Wonder Wednesday prompt this coming week by Ella who has been prompting here for quite a while.  So when Ella prompts this Wednesday, let's be sure to give her to give her a 'high five' for all the great prompts she has given.  Thanks, Ella. After that, Kim Nelson will be in charge; and from her first prompt last Wednesday you know you have something to look forward to as well.  The name Wonder Wednesday will be changing (stay tuned), but the prompt will still be on Wednesday!  

One more thing.....I am going to be going through the blogroll shortly.  The blogroll is for people who are active here at Poets United.  I personally use it sometime when I want to see if any of our members have posted something new, and I then visit the blog.  I know Sherry Blue Sky does this too.  I hope YOU do this too.  If you are someone who is not active on PU for a period of time, eventually your blog will disappear from the list.  Don't let that happen.  Link a poem on Wednesday or Sunday or make a comment somewhere on one of our features.  Be present so we know you are still 'around.'  We really are all about community.

Meanwhile, this is Poetry Pantry, one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week.  I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your poem -- either a relatively new one or one from your archives.  Then visit other poets. That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too!

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!

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.

    1. Look in the upper right hand corner of the site. There is a place to 'add your blog' to the blogroll. You HAVE been actively participating, so I definitely would add your blog.

    Wet - wet - wet !
    We're having a bit of a plumbing disaster at our house this sunday morning. Not the peaceful start to the week I had hoped for. Blogging will have to wait till things are sorted.

  11. Web of Whimsey, you linked something above that you posted in Facebook. I don't know if you will come back here and look at all, but I won't be commenting on a FB entry nor do I think many others will. Consider an actual BLOG.

    1. Paul, good to see you. I tried to comment on your poem twice, but both times it looked as if it was going and then did not. I give up. Odd, as it looks like a usual wordpress site!

  19. It has been awhile for me to get back here and post. Writing has not been coming easy. Hopefully this will change now....

    Eileen:)
