Poetry Pantry #141

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

Greetings, Poets!  

I hope you all had a good writing week.  Daylight Saving Time is starting here in the U.S.  Days are getting longer, and spring will 'officially' arrive this month!  After we get through St. Patrick's Day, of course. I just read that the largest St. Patrick's Day parade in the world is in New York City. My city here had their St. Patrick's Day parade today; but I am sure people will be celebrating both tonight and next weekend. 

 I am looking forward to seeing what each of you is sharing in the Pantry  today!  Something old or something new! I love to see your familiar faces here and also love to see new faces. 

This is one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week.   I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your ONE poem.  Then visit other poets. That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.

Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new.  Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends!

Also, don't forget to visit Poets United other days of the week.  For example, every Wednesday Kim posts a new "Verse First" prompt.  Hope you will join us there as well!

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, for those who are new here:  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 are 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. It feels icy here too. The snow is expected to arrive later today. I have had soooo enough. Two warm[ish] days last week makes this even harder to bear. Sigh.
      Happy Mother's Day for the U.K.

    2. I'm sure you will not be happy, ND Mitchell, to learn that I am barefoot in the desert Southwest this fine Sunday morning!

  5. No work on the homestead today, so we celebrate the rain, sweet rain. Nice picture - to be celebrated as well. This pseudo-vegetarian looks forward to corned beef and cabbage.

  9. Hello to my favorite Pantry fiends and its richly prepared food for thought this Sunny but cold Philadelphia day. Did you ever wonder why "friend" and "fiend" are so close and easily mistaken for each other? Hmmm? I meant "friend" above. I bring you a little out-of-body experience from my otherwise unremarkable youth.

    Good Sunday, everyone.

  19. Not only am I late, but also posted in the wrong place, before finding the right one. It's late, I'm tired and slow. Another older piece that never saw a lot of daylight,
