One Shot Wednesday: A Place to Share Your Poems


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - A Place For Poets To Share 

Brian here and this week I will be your host for One Shot! Can you believe we have only been at this for a month now. Each week i am amazed at the incredible word artists we are drawing to this community. Ok, let me cover some quick 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.

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.

At One Stop Poetry we welcome all forms of poetry and hope that One Shot Wednesday gives you a chance to share, express and feel a part of our fast growing community. On behalf of Leslie, AdamPete and myself thanks for taking part and have fun out there....

Gay said...

Hi, finally got my tumblr site to take this week's poem. It's entitled Forever Blue. Leave remarks here as apparently it's funky or impossible to do so there. Hope you enjoy it. Looking forward to reading the poems you all have posted. Thanks for inviting me.
Gay

I don't know if the poem I wrote for my son on Monday qualifies. It's titled "Twenty-two" and is here:

Any excuse to write a poem! :)

Thanks for the opportunity.

CM said...

I linked up for the first time! Not really sure if I did it right and I'm not really even a poet, but oh well :-)

I hope to make it around to all of your posts over the next day.

Emmanuel Ibok said...

Due to my poor internet connectivity, I couldnt participate last week. My apologies to my friend, the host Adam Dustus and the entire team, Moony, B and Pete.

This week I am participating and I cooked up something for this specifically. I wish you all the best as well as this community. It is a good thing for poetry to be appreciated. Have a lovely Wednesday y'all.

Cheers!

Jessie said...

i'm anxious to get started on my morning read--Happy Wednesday to all!

smiles,

Kat Mortensen said...

I do apologize for not getting around to visit many of you last week. I am in the throes of trying to promote my book and it is all-consuming as you may imagine or have experienced yourselves. I will endeavour to visit, but may not have the chance to comment on all I read. I thank you for your patience.

Kat

My first time. Love the concept.

annell said...

Don't know if I did the right thing? Was there a prompt I didn't see?

Brian Miller said...

no prompt annell...its a free for all...whatever you would like....

lacunaecorridors said...

thanks for the opportunity- first time here.

Kavita said...

@Gay: your poem was very refreshing! The analogy was quite stunning actually!
So carefully and neatly, you've let those emotions trickle through the words.. I really enjoyed it!

Gay said...

Thank you for the kind comments posted here. It was for me a summation of those "frustrating moments" with the guy you live with..can't live with/ couldn't get rid of :)

I'm wondering if I should change blog sites. I sort of fell into tumblr but it's not very accommodating. Any suggestions?

Theron Kennedy said...

thanks for the forum and the reads and comments.

Pete Marshall said...

hi...my night is drawing in and i shall continue viewing in the morning...so far i have been nothing less than impressed..thanks for all your comments and helping to make to do ONE SHOT DAY...cheers to all Pete

Hey everyone!

I've really enoyed reading all the great writing here. I stumbled onto a contributor here (thank you Brian!)during a usual evening of poetry seeking on blogger and found his mention of Oneshot. This is the place to be, and to read!!

Good luck everyone:)

laure said...

haven't done this in a while.

dustus said...

@ Mr. Bill : Enjoyed how your peom and image work together so well.
thanks for sharing with One Shot!

shewriting said...

I think I am losing my mind. I linked my Sisterhood Journey poem to another blog yesterday, but somehow ended up on the list here, too. Thanks for all the nice comments. Believe me they were completely unexpected! (Strange!) Guess I will save the one I was going to give you today for next week pending any unforeseen Twilight Zone-type activity...

MaryAnne23 said...

I always look forward to Wednesdays now!

dustus said...

Great poems all around from blog to blog! Just wanted to say that.
Thanks everybody

PattiKen said...

Reading this work is such a pleasure. So imagine my indignation that life dares to get in the way. I have gotten to only a handful of your entries. I will be back, and read them all before next Wednesday rolls around. I wouldn't miss it.

Brian Miller said...

excellent week everyone...just getting to the last 8 or so...after a nasty electircal storm...

Pete Marshall said...

One Stop Poetry is now closed for this week....an excellent response and i look forward to seeing you all again next Wednesday when your host will be our own special lady, Moondustwriter...

Still got a few for poems to see so will finish my commenting today..but high standards set once again..thanks Pete

PattiKen said...

I just finished the last One Shot entry. I am so impressed. Thank you, Leslie, Brian, Pete and Adam for creating this "salon" (to use an old word) of talent. It is an honor to participate.
