The Poetry Pantry Is Now Open! - # 80

The Poets United Community would like to wish you happy holidays.  Whatever and wherever you celebrate or even if you do not celebrate we hope the next few weeks are amazing ones for all our poets, friends and their families.  Please keep safe and we look forward to the next year here with all of you at Poets United.

So that there are no deadlines or time crunches for our contributors Poets United will only be posting the Poetry Pantry on Sundays.  Everything else will be on hold.  Consider it a small break from 18 December through 3 January.  Please feel free to post as many poems as you would like under our tree since it will be up all week.

Happy Holidays to you all!

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

Anything goes!! All Poems, all Poets, All Week!!

Do you have a poem you would like to share? Something that you just felt inspired to write and want others to read. Perhaps it’s a poem that didn’t get as much exposure on your blog as you would have liked. Maybe it’s a poem that you wrote a long time ago that you would like people to revisit. That’s what this section of Poets United is for.

Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to anything you want us to read, anything at all related to poetry or prose found on your own poetry blogs. It will remain open all week so that you can show us your writings and thoughts. You can post links weekly should you chose to do so. What poetry you put here is up to you so don't be afraid to share with us!!

There 3 simple rules:

1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.
(This one is on hold due to the holidays so please post away)

2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.

3. Leave a comment after you have posted
your link.


  1. Thanks for the never-ending open link. I'll be back periodically to read.
    Have a happy week.

  2. Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! or "whatever and wherever you celebrate or even if you" don't, I too hope the coming weeks are to all your likings.

  11. One year ago yesterday my brother died; inspired much poetry, a month of small stones and two chapbooks - both of which are ongoing - and so it goes. One of those poems can be found here:

  15. I've resurrected another of my blogs to post some of my poems on and hope that's okay for this ... I suppose if it's not, I'll hear soon enough poem Ever Since is on this blog,The Way Eye See It found at this address:
    I should perhaps mention that Blogger makes visitors go through an "adults only" click page for this site - I'm not sure why but I would caution anyone myself if I had anything the least bit risque posted so no worries on that score ...

  16. I have four "Christmas poems that will post (one a day) on my blog starting on the 22nd and ending on the 25th. I hope you check em out!

  17. A seasonal offering today...
