One Shot Poetry Wednesday! (Week 11)


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - highlight your poetic talents

My name is Adam Dustus. Welcome to One Shot for our 11th week! I am extremely happy to be part of this supportive peer community of talented poets. Let the fun begin!

New to One Shot Wednesday? Here's a quick recap of how it 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.

Cheers.
Adam

"Huff, huff, pant..."

I'm pulling my poet's mantle on changing out of my work attire.

Phew -I'm here - better late than never. Thanks Mr. Dustus for getting this show on the road.

Hope you like a new version of Aesop's Fables

Moon smiles and outstretched arm of welcome to each of you to One Shot Wednesday

Kathleen Overby said...

Oh please, please take #41 off. Delete. I'm trying to figure this all out for the first time ever. I'm scared for me and very excited to learn from all of you. I want to grow as a brand- new- pink- baby- poet. Tomorrow morning with coffee, I'm havin' me a clicking party - with your words. Forgive me this once for posting two? I was flooding words...

Milo said...

I wrote "Haiti" after last winter's earthquake and seeing a story about the destruction there.

gospelwriter said...

I missed one of the Magpie deadlines and decided, might as well write it anyway, made it just in time for One Shot. Phew! Thanks for hosting this amazing party!

Brian Miller said...

alright peeps, see you in the morning...happy one shot!

lovelyannie79 said...

dustus said...

An excellent start to One Shot! Time for sleep. Be back tomorrow. Thanks Everbody :)

dustus said...

Must be tired. I know how to spell. Really I do. lol Goodnight

forpuck said...

I see my contribution more as a visual landscape and, as ususal, I'm trying to get away from the first person focus of my own poetry, if only for a while.

tracyhsays.com said...

Shashi said...
