Poetry Pantry - #133

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

Greetings, Poets!   Wonderful to see you this Sunday again. And I am looking forward to seeing what you are bringing to the Pantry to share today!

Just as a reminder:  I am going to be going through the blogroll shortly.  The blogroll is for people who are ACTIVE here at Poets United.  I personally use it sometime when I want to see if any of our members have posted something new, and I then visit the blog.  I know Sherry Blue Sky does this too.  I hope YOU do this too. That's what it's for!  If you are someone who is not active on PU(not participating) for a period of time, eventually your blog will disappear from the list...as it is meant for poets who post here.  Don't let that happen.  Link a poem on Wednesday or Sunday or make a comment somewhere on one of our features.  Be present so we know you are still 'around.'  We really are all about community.

Remember to check back on Wednesday when Kim Nelson will post her prompt under the title Verse First.   I am excited about this and think you will be too.  Let's give her a great send-off Wednesday when Verse First is revealed for the first time.   Drumroll please!!

Meanwhile, this is Poetry Pantry, one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week.  I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your poem -- either a relatively new one or one from your archives.  Then visit other poets. That is part of the fun as well.  We really like it if you link back to Poets United too!  And hey, linking is only one part, visit one another too.

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 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.

  3. Good day, everyone. It is the middlle of the night here, so I will comment on your shares tomorrow. Wind storm going on as our temperatures are heading below zero F tonight. Waving across the world to Aprille. Indeed the world has been made smaller by the net.

  4. Hello to everyone out there. It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon here. Steaming buttery wheat-parathas, fatly stuffed with spicy grated cauliflower have just arrived on my table--ah, these spicy parathas with pickle and yogurt in winters are a pure delight... Excited!:)
    Happy Sunday to everyone here!:)

    1. Karen, your poem had no comment box. There is no way to contact you, so I hope you come back here and see this comment......as otherwise no one can respond to your poem.

  14. Hi Mary. I posted my link on the widget. I'm new to blogging, but am serious in sharing my thoughts to the world. Wish to join this blogger group (or whatever it's technically called). :) My poem's title is "Enticed". It's on the link. Wish you more power and inspiration. ;)

  15. Good morning, good afternoon, or good night, winter or summer. Yes, the internet is almost too encompassing for my mind to grasp, but it doesn't do enough. It can't make me a copy of Panchali's meal.

  16. Finally! I've been waiting for this Sunday with bated breath! Sharing one of my poems that could not reach out much despite my social shares. And I did remember to include a link to PU this time!

    Time for some great reading now. You all never disappoint me with your bril poems! :)

  20. WOW! It is a TOTAL FEAST in here. In Canada, I am just starting my day, puttering around feeding dogs and making tea. And already the entire world has checked in. Reading the comments from all over the world was just SO COOL this morning!!!!! I LOVE the net, and all of you.

  22. I've read so many wonders this morning. Thank you fellow creators!

  23. Shivani Ahuja, I commented on your poem, but I know my comment went into SPAM....but I have no way of contacting you.

    Tatius, I didn't see a link to comment on the poem you shared; so I commented on a different one. Perhaps you will be able to add the comment box?

  24. Thanks so much, as always, for this wonderful forum!

  25. Just arrived, late as usual. I think my personality is changing from perfectionist to catch-you-if-I-can. I am sorry. Thank you for the keeping the pantry stocked with good reading.

  26. Just saying.....I personally won't be commenting on the 'Facebook posts' that are appearing here. I consider poetry blogging & Facebook two different venues. A couple of these have appeared each Sunday, but I don't see FB linkers reciprocating by visiting any blogs either.

  27. Hi, Mary!
    So windy here in NH, as well. Going to be freezing for the next few days.
    But it is winter.
    Have a great week.

  28. Hi,

  29. Mary, the Blenza linky site is down for maintenance I believe and is not opening the linky here for me.

    My poetry pantry link for this week is here: http://artofleo.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/retirement/

    I'll read once Blenza is back up and running :)

  31. I have not posted here for a while but wrote this one that I have not posted elsewhere so thought it would be a good one to post. I am late but thought I would give it a try anyway. See familiar names here and some unknown (to me) as well. Will take a look at posts!
