2nd Chance Poems or 1st time shares

Greetings, Poets!  

I hope you all had a good writing week.  I had thought spring was on the horizon, but last week we had a 12-inch snowfall here; so I guess not.  Sigh.  But at least the days ARE getting longer, and spring will 'officially' arrive this month!  After we get through St. Patrick's Day, of course. 

 I am looking forward to seeing what each of you is sharing in the Pantry  today!  Something old or something new! I love to see your familiar faces here and also love to see new faces. 

This is one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week.   I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your ONE poem.  Then visit other poets. That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too, so we spread the Poetry Pantry word in the blogosphere.

Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new.  Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends!

Also, don't forget to visit Poets United other days of the week.  For example, every Wednesday Kim posts a new "Verse First" prompt.  Hope you will join us there as well!

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, for those who are new here:  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 are 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. I've missed the Pantry for the last couple of weeks. It's good to be back! Something new from me this time around. Happy Sunday everyone :-)

  2. this is the fourth month of doing all my blogging through poetry and people are loving it. the charity Tearfund have even embraced it andaskedme to be one of their bloggers, this is my first poem for them.

  3. Hope everyone enjoys their Sunday. I really enjoy being part of Poets United and can't wait to read some poetry today.

  4. I will be reading poems later on today! I thank those of you who are already 'on the trail' beating me to it!

  5. I'll be back, poet-friends! Thanks, Mary!

  6. I posted an oldie, kids, that I posted before in the pantry a year ago. Very busy this weekend, but I will make my way around your links as the day goes on.......happy Sunday everyone!

  7. Happy Sunday everyone... as usual, I'm looking forward to reading your posts, the best part of this process!

  8. A beautiful March to everyone and may you be blessed with an abundance of poetry.

  9. Happy Sunday and a great March be blessed in everything you do.

  10. Last week, the Pantry was open when I had only one poem that whole week to share. Thank you so much for allowing us to take breaks for health (in my case, mental) or other reasons, and then drop back in. It's a pleasure participating at all times with Poets United! Peace, Amy

  11. Thanks for providing this place and for all the work that you do,


  12. Hello everyone, busy busy times here. Catch up on some reading while there's a little peace :)

  13. hi all, sorry i haven't been around much, busy busy over here. hope you've had great weeks, looking forward to seeing what you've written and created. x

  14. A little late to the party on this fine Sunday. Now to get to some inspired reading. Happy week to all of you :)

  15. I never thought I'd say this: Thanks for the Facebook reminder! Love you, Poets United.

  16. Oh gosh, I made it! Was afraid I might have missed the deadline; glad I didn't. Have been immersed lately in creating brand-new poems to another close deadline, for a print magazine I want to be in, which doesn't accept pieces that have been blogged. Of course, any they don't accept will be blogged forthwith! :)

  17. I'm super excited to see what everyone's written!
    Stay warm!
