Poetry Pantry - #131

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

Hello, Friends - Hope that all of you have gotten through the frantic holiday days and are now in the routine of the new year.   I am glad that even though the days are still short, I know that the days now will be gradually lengthening.    I do hope that you have been writing in the past days, past weeks, and that you will have something to share with us in the Poetry Pantry this week.

I would also like to mention that there have been a few requests to be placed on the Poets United Blog Roll (along the right hand side of the page) lately from people who have not participated in Poets United Poetry Pantry or Wonder Wednesday at all.  To be listed on the blogroll,  please get involved with Poets United as it is meant for those who actively participate in the site.

I encourage you, after you link,  to 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.


  1. Good morning on this for many a snowy day. For others gloriously warm or too hot. Wish we could mix and divide the temperatures between us all :-)

  2. I'm looking forward to a bit more sunlight every day too...and some good reading here :-)

  19. Mary,

    A very Happy New Year to you and Poets United....:)
    I made a concerted effort today to leave time to complete a new poem and to link it into The Sunday Pantry. I have been absent for a few months, due to time constraints.
    I shall vist as many Blogs as possible over the coming week and reciprocate in the spirit of Poets United.
    Best Wishes,

  20. hope everyone has a good week!

  21. Happy second week of 2013. Good writing to you all.
