One Shot Wednesday: Poetry in Motion


Welcome To One Shot Wednesday
no theme, just poetry
in motion

I am brian miller and welcome to another week of some of the best poetry on the web...especially now that our star performer is here...You, of course. I can not wait to see what you have in store for us this week so...step into the light, pick up the mic, let your verse flow, cause it's One Shot tonight...

If you are new to One Shot Wednesday here is the deal:

1) Write a poem
2) Link your poem to One Shot using our Mr Linky (your name and the URL for the poem)
3) Visit other One Shot poets. Tell them how you felt when reading, encourage them, interact...we might just learn something from each other...
4) Tell others about One Shot Wednesday by including a link to this page on your post.

On behalf of One Shot Wednesday, Pete Marshall, Adam Dustus, Leslie Moon, and myself, welcome to our corner stage of poetic paradise. We are glad you are here.

I wrote this two years ago on the 21st anniversary of my mother’s death but revised it this week. I’ll let you read between the lines of what is written but sentimental it is not!

Got an early start this week, as I am not sure when I will have time to post tomorrow.

I think you'll like this story of a farmer who may be a bit like you, dear writers.

This is a poem I wrote in winter this year...it's a poem about facing the eternal battle, when your body or our "self" is your opponent...
