One Shot Wednesday: A Place To Share Your Poems


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - where you get to highlight your poetic talents

Moondustwriter (aka Leslie Moon) here hosting week 2 of One Shot Wednesday. If you are new, here are some brief instructions;

1, Write an original poem and post it to your blog

2, Link back to One Shot Wednesday from your post

3, Sign up in the Mr Linky list, linking directly to your post, AFTER you've posted it. Mr Linky will be open from 5pm EST (Tuesday) until 3am EST (Thursday)

4, Go visit others that have posted. This is a great way to learn new forms, meet new poets and gain inspiration for your next piece. though this is not mandatory we encourage you to visit at least one other poet and give some helpful feedback.

We welcome all forms of poetry at One Shot and hope you feel the sense of community here. On behalf of  my fellow cohorts, Adam Dustus (who has just joined us), Brian Miller and Pete Marshall - welcome and enjoy!!!!!

Thanks, Leslie. Here's to another good week of poems. I posted an ode today, inspired by Pablo Neruda.

Brian Miller said...

welcome to one shot wednesday everybody! looking forward to seeing what this week brings...we had some amazing talent last week!

JRM said...

Mine is a little loose to be a "poem", but I feel it's good "prose". I posted it 2 weeks ago to my blog and wanted to give it some attention due to the message I tried to portray within it.

Poetikat said...

Thanks for the opportunity to share poetry with new people.
I have linked to you, but due to the template design, the colour of the link does not show unless you hover over it, but the click will still bring you back here!

soundoffreedom said...

mines up count me in and I'm looking forward to reading all the rest!

Poetikat said...

I fixed the link issue, but now I see, after much experimentation I've ended up with the same template as the one here. (It was not deliberate.)

JRM said...

And another, since today is properly Wednesday.
