One Shot Wednesday: A Place To Share Your Poems


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

Here we go with another great One Shot Wednesday...
I’m Adam Dustus and it’s a privilege to host OSW this week!

Before signing up— a quick recap of how One Shot works:


1. Write a poetic piece & post it on your blog

2. Then let us know about your post. Link back to One Shot

3. Sign up in the Mr Linky list, linking directly to your post, AFTER you've posted it.

4. Go visit others who have signed up! Offer support & encouragement. Share your love of words and insight respectfully. Please try to visit as many participating poets as you can. We all could use and appreciate kind feedback.

All forms of poetry are accepted for One Shot Wednesday. Everyone is welcome. Feel free to invite your fellow poet friends to join the festivities. Let’s make this a great, supportive community! So on behalf of Leslie, Brian, and Pete this week—enjoy and help foster the supportive growth of our creative community.

Cheers.
Adam

Alright poets, we've had some great posts and interaction on One Shot Wednesday since launching a few weeks ago. Thank you to everyone who has participated, as well as to all who've helped spread word about the One Stop Site.

Okay, allow me to kick things off... You can find my One Shot post here:

Thanks everyone for coming to another One Shot Wednesday.

My question for this week: How can we encourage you as a poet?

I too am looking forward to this week primarily because I look forward to reading the wonderful posts and I am encouraged by growing friendships - hope you are too.

My poem this week was inspired by a friendship with a poet who has inspired me.

gay, wish i could comment...a fun ramble and quite the adventure

dustus said...

Gwei's link is good now—excellent. Also great to see Kat in the house!

Some great poetry so far! Enjoying. Thanks all!

dustus said...

Gay, you're poem was outstanding. What a musical journey you created with your poetry... Thank you for posting on One Shot Wednesday!

dustus said...

Apparently, YOUR emcee cannot spell very well this evening. lol

G-Man said...

This is wildly successful for being such a new Forum.

Well, I've posted my little bit of wordage. Can't wait to read everyone else's efforts! :)

moondustwriter said...

Never read a word from Tony I didn't enjoy.

Didn't welcome Amanda "properly"

Claudia, Cat et al - a wonderful house of poets.

Great talent on here - thanks to the hosts for doing a great job !

Boonsong said...

I file my poems under rotten rhymes, so I'm not sure that you'd like them. But I am still enjoying all of yours. Please do keep up the good work.

All the best, Boonsong

dustus said...

@ Amanda: Welcome to One Shot! You already fit in :)Thanks for giving it a shot. (excuse horrible pun. lol)

Thanks signed...bkm & Kira Stann (nice seeing you on twitter KS).
Claudia, Chris, Tracy.. welcome friends!

Great to see Talon back helping us out! Thank you so so much.

Wild Rose, welcome back. Glad to see you again!

Thanks, Alec. We've had some great hosts thus far... Bri, Pete, Leslie.. what makes it fun is when everyone gets involved and comments.

dustus said...

@ Boonsong: Thanks for joining us! Nice to meet you.

John's comments said...

Penny dropped that I can link my poetry to the blog on Wednesday rather then submit to an 'editorial' panel - yes I know slow or what! For one time only I have linked to to all my blogs to offer a range of what I have scribbled out but in future I'll just post one of what ever emerges in the week. Scribbles and Diversions is where I do more formal longer poetry. I have posted an elegy.
Random Twitter Stories has Haiku's, Tanka's and Gogyohka's of which I have posted an example. Finally, Random Short Stories tends to feature mostly free verse poems around 50ish words. I do poetry for fun so have no claims or ambitions to be a published poet. Now time for a cup of tea as a lot of poets to visit.

It's Shot time again!!! Love to be back! :)
Here is my poem for this week...
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

dustus said...

Kavita :) Thanks for sharing the old photo too! Appreciate your enthusiasm!

dustus said...

Mr.Bill... Cannot seem to post a comment on your page, so will tell you here that I enjoyed your haiku. Goes great conceptually with the image, in which the middle footprint breaking the "frame" of the rectangle looks very cool. Thanks.

MrBill said...

Greetings to old friends and nice meetings to new friends. Sharing a special haiku with you for OneShotWednesday - Friendprints - http://redgage.com/blogs/MrBill/friendprints.html
Cheers! MrBill (-;

MrBill said...

Hi Dustus, thank you very much. It's a fun little verse that came about from playing with my friend's vacation photos ... btw, you have to join the RedGage community to be able to leave comments, but that is simple to do and free too! Here's the link--> http://dld.bz/dXU7
Cheers! MrBill (-;

PattiKen said...

Gay: I love this. You have captured the cadence and vernacular so well, I was there with Tatters. I'm assuming that Tatters is a dog, and like most animals, he could see past the shabby exterior to the kindred soul within.

Brian Miller said...

ok, back in the hunt to catch up...some work has to be done you know...smiles.

faery of the wilds said...

I ma late but i think its ok :)

Gay said...

Thank you everyone who read my poem or poems @ grcannon.tumblr.com and you can follow me @beachanny on twitter. I appreciate the remarks on my "dog" pov poem. It was fun and part of an ongoing group of Texas poetry I'm writing. I read some poems by the folks here but didn't quite know where to make comments. Sort of new to all this. Thanks again. Gay

Gay said...

PattiKen, I read your post after I wrote mine. Yes, Tatters is the mythical dog; however there is a living myth that Leadbelly did once meet Blind Lemon in Deep Ellum and play a blues set with him. I'm not sure it's been authenticated.

patty said...

Hello my friends, felt like doing some dark poetry. Hope you all enjoy

Gay said...

Hello again. I am now following a lot of you on twitter. I clicked on several names from this page which took me to your blogs but then I wasn't sure what I was meant to read.
I guess I could use a little help for next time. I did like the several pieces I read and left notes there for each of you.
Thank you for your kind words posted here. It is comforting when someone likes your work, as you know.

Brian Miller said...

thanks everyone for an incredible oneshot wednesday! and to our perfect host...thank you dustus!

Amanda said...

For some reason I could not leave a comment in the following participants blogs :- Alec, Gwei, Anthony and Gay...I read all of your poetry and the standard and quality is absolutely outstanding. I am proud to be here with you!! Thanks all and have a wonderful day ~ Amanda

MaryAnne23 said...
