Poetry Pantry - #138

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

Greetings, Poets!  

Wonderful to see you this Sunday again. At least none of us were hit by the meteorite, and the asteroid passed by earth safely.  Mardi Gras is behind us. And the Carnival Triumph is now back safely in port.  Life goes on.....

 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.  Please leave a comment for us below when you link.  (I will leave mine in the morning, as I will be asleep when the Pantry - and my link - goes live.)  Tell us something about your poem, your week, your weather, or whatever.

This is one of my favorite spaces to post during the poetic week, and I post in many.  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!

A few individuals have been sharing Facebook links. Please don't. Truly, this site is meant for posting blog links....not meant as ways to give someone's Facebook site some extra 'hits.'  (And the FB linkers don't really seem to participate anyway beyond posting their links....) 

But, 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.

  3. Hi Happy Sunday wherever you are - 4am and 14 degrees F here - so either you can be happy because it's warmer where you are and you are not here, can commiserate or feel good about yourself because you are able to endure colder weather than here :-) Glad I could be of assistance
