2nd Chance Poems or 1st time shares

Hello, Friends - Happy  Sunday before New Year.  Where did the year go?. 

I want to take this opportunity to wish each of you a very Happy New Year from all of us at Poets United.  Thank you for gifting us with your participation, poetry, and your selves during the year. We appreciate YOU.

I do know this is still a busy time for everyone; but the Pantry will be here for those who would like to share a poem, as well as spend time visiting the poems of others who the spirit of friendship with fellow poets.  I look forward to seeing what many of you share this week. 

And, as always, please leave a comment in the comment section for us...and if you are an early poster, perhaps check back later and see what others have said!

The Pantry will close  at 12 noon Central Time on Monday.  I think that should give people enough time to link their poem, and you can always make visits to other poems even AFTER Mr. Linky is closed. 

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.

Also, if you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site.  It is one more way to stay in touch!

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 12:00 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.
