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.
2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.
3. Leave a comment after you have posted
shared a few, thanks for opening the opportunity to all of us,
Happy Valentine's day!

Grey morning in Port Alberni, BCReplyDelete
Be the change you want
but never make a mistake
blossoms turn to madness anyway
illusions offer good times and prayers.
Abandon a name and don't be afraid.
Blessings dissolve in your cup, shaping
injustices in offering the imperfect.
For goodness sake shine like a new day.
Ignore the tyranny, it's here to stay;
the greed, the irritation. It's all a risk
but at least try something new. Keep
the stillness, surrender to the barriers,
the doubters and traitors.
Go live by the ocean.
Dissolve yourself. Winged hearts are
beautiful, ride the rhythm of a polished
sand floor. Be indifferent. Wrap your courage
around you. Love is an ocean, that's what I say.
Wow, a fellow poet from Port Alberni! Such a beautiful poem. I especially love the closing stanza.Delete
I posted one from my Soul Card Journey series, made all through the month of April 2011.Nice to see all of you here this morning!ReplyDelete

Herotomost - I have tried a few times to leave comments at your site. For some reason they are not being accepted.Loved your poem about El Sol....."not enough sand.......to cover the depth of his sorrow." Fantastic!Delete
Thanks Sherry, trying to figure out why. I am a little new to the whole blog design thing. I appreciate the stop...more than you know.Delete
A cold day by the moor - have lit the coal fire.ReplyDelete

A nice Sunday treat, finding The Pantry open!!!
Hi to all of Poets United and participants with The Poetry Pantry.ReplyDelete
An unexpected surprise discovering this opportunity.
What I write may not strictly be Poetry, but the words succinctly tell my Story I feel, and I hope you'll enjoy the experience.
I've already quietly visited other participants... there certainly are words gathered together triggering wonderful thoughts, images and feelings I'm discovering.
Thanks so much for this Adventure with Words
Here's one with a philosophical bent, written for dVerse Poets...ReplyDelete
Happy Sunday everyone! I linked up a blitz poem I wrote during the final race of last year's Nascar season, just to get my engine revved up a little bit more since the racing season just about to kick off again.ReplyDelete
oh yeah, wow. i am excited to read other's work. i am excited to share. fun.ReplyDelete
happy valentine's ❤ be your own valentine.
First, Happy Valentine's of course - This poem is also up over at Poetic Bloomings; it's a cento and one of my all time favourite things to write so since the blogroll here still seems to be stuttering somewhat, I thought I'd try to get it some more airplay through the pantry ... if that makes any kind of sense ... in any case,"Its Cold Teeth Precise" can be found here:ReplyDelete
Thanks for the opportunity to share! Happy Valentine's Day. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you again for the opportunity to share! Happy Valentine's Week!ReplyDelete
They're short poems. Will check out yours, too!ReplyDelete
I put this poem on called "I am becoming silent" which is I guess a strange title for a poet.ReplyDelete
It's a short poem about one of those moments in life when we recognise that we've changed, or grown in some way.
I'm OK with pantries as long as the cheese is kept somewhere else.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to reading the wonderful poems posted here :)ReplyDelete
My post (#76) is actually a short story. It is a zombie story. I hope that that is alright. I hope you all enjoy. If a short story is unacceptable for this forum, please let me know where I can post it. Thank you!ReplyDelete
I posted my jump-rope-song of the apocalypse. The link also has an audioblog of the poem.ReplyDelete
The edge of my becomingReplyDelete
like the bending stem
of a daisy at the end of Fall
before the white pedals
wilt and drop
still proudly I stand
Would like to think
my stamens perpetuating
something of me
if not my petals
at least my color
and strength of stem
I’ve stood here for my
let the wind blow me
side to side
other species step on me
steal my pollen
but that’s the way
it should be of a daisy
So much I’ve seen
so much I’ve grown
I’ve let the elements
of life influence me
some things I did not
understand but I
accepted that, allowing
the wind to do it’s thing
Today some of my petals
have begun wilting
none have yet fallen off
but soon i will be at the feet
of someone else
hopefully I will be
a part of new growth
Feb 14th in mind.ReplyDelete
Thank you everyone as always.ReplyDelete
My third, and last, link is not to a poem, but a musical Valentine :-) Hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's Day!ReplyDelete

Linking again, thank you to PUReplyDelete
Linking to a new poem of mine, 'saints'. Just in time for Lent. I'll leave it up to my readers to decide whether it qualifies as a Lenten sacrifice.ReplyDelete
I look forward to reading some of the other poems in the links.
Linking again! Thanks for the opportunity to share poems. :)ReplyDelete
And latest of all, an audio-blogged poem of mine, malison d'etre. 'Jonathan is a bat outReplyDelete
which explains his crispy singed
I also have a post on my blog that explains how I go about recording my audio for the sake of other writers/poets who want to give readings online.
