Poetry Pantry #155






Greetings, Poets!  

Glad to see each of you here this week. Hope you each had a poetic week & also will share one of your poems here.  This past week, if you didn't notice, I wasn't active in the blogosphere.  I was at Disney World with my daughter and two grandchildren.  I took the photo above in the the Magic Kingdom.   Memories are wonderful, aren't they?  Whether they are preserved in pictures or in poetry or in some other form.  Poetry IS important in my life, and so are photos.  I took many wonderful photos, which will help me relive my vacation for years to come.  Poetry truly is much the same.......

This is one of my favorite spaces to post.  I hope you look forward to it too.  Link your ONE poem.   Then visit other poets.  And I will too.  We ALL like comments, so if you link please DO spend time visiting others.  (Several of you forget about that aspect...sigh.) 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!  Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?

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!  Sherry Blue Sky does a feature (it varies) on Monday, and Rosemary Nissen-Wade does "I Wish I'd Written This" every Friday!

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, 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.

Enjoy!

  1. This is the first time I am visiting Poet Pantry. I am confused. What is the topic/theme for poetry this sunday?

  2. Kalpana, there is no specific theme or topic for the pantry. You may post either new or older poems that you'd like to share. Hope you enjoy your poetic experience here,

  4. I was not active last week too. Rains are taking a toll here. We didn't have power for 1 whole week as electric lines were disturbed by falling trees. My heart goes out for the people of Northern regions of India, who are facing a calamity sans bounds. Nature is brutal at times.

  6. It's bad form to post and bolt. Can someone explain to me why lately it seems admins are reminding participants to drop a link and COMMENT to others? If you can't be bothered to read and comment, why drop a link with hopes of being read? No one is asking we comment to every contributor but surely we have time to comment to some.

    1. I agree, LaTonya. It might be hard to comment on every poem for sure; but we sure can comment on some.

  9. Thank you for calling attention to the 'comment' aspect of reading and linking. It gets lonely in the cyber world sometimes. In fact, on many occasions 'lonely' is a precursor to entering into this world.

    1. Very true, it does. Commenting back and forth does give a feeling of community, which is really what we strive for here at Poets United. But it takes all of us to achieve that. My best to you, Marcoantonio!!
