Poetry Pantry #143

The Poetry Pantry

2nd Chance Poems or 1st time shares

Greetings, Poets!  


 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.  It saddens me when I see link droppers who don't leave a comment saying hello and don't comment on other people's poems even if others comment on theirs.  Please, if you share a poem here, be reciprocal.  Reciprocity IS a two-way street.

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 (yes, we like to be mentioned in your post), 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! If someone you don't know visits you, be sure to visit them as well.

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!  We are very heartened by participation at "Verse First."

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.

  14. Added a sijo poem (Korean style poem) about one of my cats. Included a picture of the cat. Had planned to make an audio of the poem but don't have the right software on my new computer for that. Thanks to all who visited my poem last time.

  15. I am sharing a poem previously posted, before I joined Poet's United.
    I must agree that I wish everyone was more inclined to visit and comment. That is where the Unity is important. I am happy to be a part of this!

  21. Mary,

    I have been busy today with family visiting for dinner.
    I wanted to write a new poem and so my entry into The Sunday Pantry, is later than I had hoped.
    I shall make visits to other Blogs and poets, when I can over the coming week.
    I have added this Blog, Ethereal Awakenings, as I am developing a first book of poems, via my original Blog, Words & Thoughts:)

    A happy new week to all,
    Eileen:)

    1. Deborah,

      Welcome to Poets United. It is lovely to have you joining us:)
      I try to call by here during the week and to find others who may have posted poems late.
      It was rewarding to find you here, as I have been able to read your poem and comment.
      Thank you for visiting my Blog and leaving your comment. Much appreciated.

      Have a good week,
      Eileen:)

  23. “With Mary at the Tomb”

    The milk and honey poured from His
    Perfect and tamed lips…

    Resting upon the shore and distant hills
    His eyes rescued the withering souls
    Who cried out and spoke
    Son of David!

    My hands cup to catch the sundry
    Raindrops of truths, I sip…

    Quiescent and leaning upon a boulder
    I feel His eyes collect me upwards
    And with one soft sweeping
    I praise the empty grave!

    1. Deborah,

      Your words are particularly fitting for this Easter week. A very sincere and prayerful poem.

      Happy Easter to you,
      Eileen
