The Poetry Pantry Is Now Open! - # 87

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
your link.


  1. good morning,

    shared a few, thanks for opening the opportunity to all of us,

    Happy Valentine's day!

  2. Thanks for the opportunity to share my little poem called "playground."

  3. This one is simple and straightforward.

  4. Happy Valentine's Day week!

  5. Beautiful morning in California! Happy Sunday.

  6. Grey morning in Port Alberni, BC


    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.

    1. Wow, a fellow poet from Port Alberni! Such a beautiful poem. I especially love the closing stanza.

  7. 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!

  8. I will wish you all a wonderful sunday and a great week. For this week I have contributed an essay on Basho (a haiku poet) from my weblog Basho Revisited.

  9. My snowdrops have been good this year - physically and emotionally.

  10. back after a fortnight.hope u enjoy this.

  11. Well, kinda new to this Linky deal...not sure if I really got what I wanted there, if not check out And the North Beach Rain....any reads are greatly appreciated.

    1. 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 cover the depth of his sorrow." Fantastic!

    2. 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.

  12. A cold day by the moor - have lit the coal fire.

  13. Poets United,

    A nice Sunday treat, finding The Pantry open!!!


  14. Hi to all of Poets United and participants with The Poetry Pantry.
    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

  15. Here's one with a philosophical bent, written for dVerse Poets...

  16. 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.

  17. oh yeah, wow. i am excited to read other's work. i am excited to share. fun.

    happy valentine's ❤ be your own valentine.

  18. 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:

  19. Thanks for the opportunity to share! Happy Valentine's Day. :)

  20. Thank you again for the opportunity to share! Happy Valentine's Week!

  21. They're short poems. Will check out yours, too!

  22. I put this poem on called "I am becoming silent" which is I guess a strange title for a poet.
    It's a short poem about one of those moments in life when we recognise that we've changed, or grown in some way.

  23. I'm OK with pantries as long as the cheese is kept somewhere else.

  24. Looking forward to reading the wonderful poems posted here :)

  25. 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!

  26. I posted my jump-rope-song of the apocalypse. The link also has an audioblog of the poem.

  27. The edge of my becoming
    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
    designated time
    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
    standing here
    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

  28. My third, and last, link is not to a poem, but a musical Valentine :-) Hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  29. hope everyone is having a great week.

    almost 3am, i'll have to come back tomorrow night to visit others links. ♥

  30. Late this week but, better late than never :)

  31. Oops, sorry - link 99 is correct, not 98. But I can't figure out how to say that within the link list..

  32. 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.

    I look forward to reading some of the other poems in the links.

  33. Linking again! Thanks for the opportunity to share poems. :)

  34. And latest of all, an audio-blogged poem of mine, malison d'etre. 'Jonathan is a bat out
    of hell
    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.
