One Shot Wednesday - A Place To Share Your Poems


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

Hi and welcome to another One Shot Wednesday, the fastest growing poetry community on-line. I am Pete Marshall, the only Brit amongst three Americans, and I will be your comp√®re today. One Shot Wednesday has witnessed some amazing work by some truly talented poets and I look forward to reading more great poems today. Before we start lets recap on how One Shot Wednesday 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.

Lastly, all forms of poetry are accepted for One Shot Wednesday. Everyone is welcome.

Cheers Pete

I posted a poem from my weekly (for two whole weeks now!) feature, Sundays with LC. Lemuel Crouse is my shadow self, the dark and brooding poet who loathes the light of day...

John's comments said...

This is me continuing with poems using adapted formal structures. This one is a Sestina about a cold hearted seducer and its called I’m the beast that you fear, in the shadows of night

Monkey Man said...

I've been hanging out amongst the trees again. Love the inspiration. Hop you will, too. I am posted, but will do my reading and commenting in the AM.

Magnus Holmgren said...

It's a pleasure to read all your wonderful poems, it truly is.

I try to comment on as many as I can but it's a bit difficult when 99% of the time I'm only connected to the internet via a DumbPhone(tm)

Thanks for sharing.

Hmm. My name disappeared from the list. I must have put it in early. I have changed my blog so I can get comments and have several new poems. Especially would like you to read The Quest and Entertaining Woman. Thank you. Gay

What a crew you've brought together here! It's fun to join the fun.

Brian Miller said...
