Poetry Pantry - #120

The Poetry Pantry
2nd Chance Poems or 1st time shares
Hi Poets - How are you all doing this week? Hope you all have found poetic inspiration since we met here last Sunday. And hope your life has brought you good things.  It is always nice to look forward to spending time with you sharing poetry on Sunday.

Even if you wrote your poem for another site originally, consider also including a link back to Poetry Pantry to spread the word and the joy of poetry and help others to discover our site. I have been heartened by the number of people who really have gotten into the habit of visiting a large number of fellow poets.  Please try to visit as many other poets as you can.  Admittedly if I have visited people who have not returned visits  or who I notice never visit other people's poetry blogs to comment, I may not find my way to their blog after a while........

If you see someone's name you don't recognize, stop in and say "Welcome."  And if you are a person new to this site, the best way to be known is to visit others' sites.  If you are someone who links on the second day, the best thing for you to do is visit others' sites as well; and hopefully they will then return your visit. And don't forget to leave a comment here at this site after you link.  Even if just to say hi to your poet friends.

And is the procedure:  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 8:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.

There 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.


  1. Happy Sunday everyone! I hope all are well and ready for a new adventure of traveling through the myriad and sundry poems presented for our perusal...

  2. Happy Sunday! And thanks as always for this forum. Here's my Mucked Up Music.

  3. Happy weekend to all. Once again, this is my only poem of the week. Hope you enjoy it.

  4. I felt a bit whimsical one evening this week. (Seems to happen increasingly often with age...)

  5. A native American from this region was just recognized by the catholic church, quite exciting and appropriate for a Sunday, have a great day everyone.

  6. Glad to see you all today! It is going to be a warm and wonderful fall day where I live. Hope it is pleasant where you live as well. Thanks to those who have already made rounds with responding. I will be out and about now as well for a while....seeing what you all shared.

  7. Can't wait to start clicking your links! Have a grand Sunday everyone! Create, create, create!!

  8. Hi kids, one from the dusty archives this morning. I look forward to reading your offerings, though it may be somewhat later in the day. My dog gets her shots this morning!

  9. Good morning all! I got something new up this morning!

  10. A new one, sprung from a quote from "Paradise Lost".

  11. Mary,

    I have posted a poem, written with my mother in mind. It is seventeen years today, since she passed away....I miss her very much.
    I shall visit other Blogs, as and when I can this week. Thank you in advance to those who do make the gesture, which I always appreciate very much:)

  12. Hi everyone, I have been following this online community for a while, but I haven't had much time to comment of share my own writing. I think this is such a great initiative. Thanks for all of the time and effort you put in on this blog.

  13. Here I am back for more poetry from the pantry! My poem is all about wild music!

  14. A quick note to everyone: If you're going to provide a critique on someone else's work, please scrub your own work of any comical hypocrisy first.


    I am not referring to anything on my site.

  15. Looking forward to reading some beautiful poetry.
