Poetry Pantry #159

Hohenzollern Castle - Sigmaringen,  Germany


Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week. Hope you each had a poetic week & also will share one of your poems here.  It is always fun to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same. 

This is one of my favorite spaces to post.  I hope you look forward to it too.  

Link your ONE poem.   Then leave a comment below. Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  (If I miss your poem, visit me, and I will visit you... I am like anyone else, appreciating reciprocity.) We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others.  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!  Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?

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!  Sherry Blue Sky does a feature (it varies) on Monday, and Rosemary Nissen-Wade does "I Wish I'd Written This" every Friday!

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.

Enjoy!

  3. Today I'm sharing a personal poem. One that came to me suddenly. Inspiration comes at the strangest times but I enjoy when it does.

    Have a great Sunday :)

  4. Happy Sunday. I love castles. Today I'm sharing a poem on forgiveness. I hope Mother Earth forgives us and stops these huge earthquakes we are getting in NZ in my city - they are scary.

  6. I am posting a poem from the Zimmerman trial aftermath. I hope you will add links to poems that have helped you cope with the messy messy world of guns, of racial profiling, of desperate need for change!

    Have a great week ahead, good writing!

  7. Good morning, Poets. I posted a poem about numbers, with what I consider some very interesting statistics expressed poetically. Looking forward to your thoughts on it. Smiles. It is a fine day for reading poetry! Looking forward to reading what you write. I will be in and out as the day goes on.

    1. PT, I can never comment in your blog; and there is no way I can contact you. I never see a response blank, and I can't move things around at all to accomplish this. Sorry.

    3. Well, on my Mac I don't have IE; but I got in with SAFARI. (I usually use Chrome.) Thanks for the suggestion.

    2. The power is back on. But the rains are not ceasing. Its been 2 months nearly since monsoon began, and not a day has passed without rains. Everything is wet. Awful, really.

  19. Happy Sunday! And thanks to all the folks who so kindly visited my blog last week. I'm back again with a new poem--- well, an old poem that's in my self-published poetry book. And I also posted a little about my latest crack-brained scheme--- a poetry zine I'm planning to start called Red Explosions Poetry Zine. I will be visiting some of your poems today and can't wait to see what I will find.
