Poetry Pantry - #136

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

Greetings, Poets!   Wonderful to see you this Sunday again. Some of you might have been hit by a major blizzard this week. Beautiful, but definitely a challenge to live through.  

 I am looking forward to seeing what each of you is sharing in the Pantry  today!  Something old or something new!

This is one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week.  I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your 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.

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! 

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 now...here 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 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'm not writing so very much at present, so this is my sole offering of the week.

  7. It's been a long time since I participated...it's nice to join in again. I've branched out into photography these last couple of years, but still write the occasional poem. Thank you for the chance to share! Have a lovely weekend.
