I had to come back here to say this. I am consistently awestruck by the collection of writers here.

This is by far the best writings, by every writer every week. I am gobsmacked, literally. Thank you everyone. (snaps and blushes) You all should give yourselves a pat on the back.

WOW.

Love and Light,

Sender

Pete Marshall said...

good morning to you all..well it is for me..the host returns having been allowed a lie in!!!!...great to see so much activity at One Shot...and great to see more newcomers as well as our regular great poets...hope you enjoy this amazing day...Pete

Ben Langhinrchs said...

I decided to put up a poem that fairly reeks of social commentary. Well, maybe. It reeks of something.

steveroni said...

Accidentally posted twice on
# 78 and 79 (steveroni) Can you get rid on one of those?

Thank you--and it is not by chance, and not at all surprising that these poetry places of yours are the fastest growing blogs on the net, the most popular. GREAT content, GREAT poetry all through. A pleasure to join in with my amateurish efforts

Enjoy this SO much. Thank you again!

Pete Marshall said...

just reading through all the comments and would like to say a big thankyou...some great things are being said...but remember its you, the poet, that makes this work..cheers pete

Everyday Goddess said...

I love the enthusiasm over here! What a delight! I'll get around to visit.

senderupwords said...

OK - so yesterday I was gushing a bit by the AMAZING work that I had read by that point.

I have now read each and every poem this week (so far submitted) and it causes me to wonder just how the universe conspired to bring us all together like this.

Between Magpie and One Stop - there is nowhere else you need to go on the net to find thoughtful, insightful, beautiful and poignant writing of all types.

THANK YOU EVERYONE and I am humbled to be in your company.

Thank you.

Love and Light, Sender

Pete Marshall said...

Hi senderupwords....wow thanks you for that wonderful comment...we do try our best to but as i said before it your poets that really make this happen..cheers pete

Brian Miller said...

This is one cool concept, allowing so many writers around the world to share their writings! I'm kinda ashamed I never knew about this sooner until now.

First time 'Shooter' here. Thanks for making this opportunity available. It's great to come out of my little corner and meet up with other writers. I'm looking forward to learning and enjoying!

Khakjaan Wessington said...

It's really galling to deal with moderated sites. Why should I bother critiquing a poem when there's a good chance someone hypersensitive is going to delete my hard work? Can't I just review poems here & post a link?

L.L. Barkat said...

I am so difficult. Like a jar of honey. So says the poem. :)

Brian Miller said...

ok i have been offline most of the day...got some reading to do...

HisFireFly said...

I'm late.. but I'm here!

Will have lots to read I see!

Pete Marshall said...

wow...another great oneshot and thanks to all for taking part....as host i am now officially closing this weeks proceedings and look forward to a great return by you all and more next week...cheers pete

jen revved said...

I don't know if I'm too late, but I'll include my link here-- it says the linky link expired and I have no idea where it is-- but thanks-- Maureen D told me about this terrific site and I post poetry often at http:loquaciouslyyours.com -- most recent poem posted yesterday. Dying for readers! xJ

Pete Marshall said...

thanks jen...i have put your entry up but yes it is closed...we open from 10pm UK time every tuesday...i hope you enjoy your time here...regards pete

rob kistner said...

Even after 5 years posting and prompting poetry on the internet, it's nice to know I can still find a place I've not been. Nice site you have here. I am pleased to have posted a link to your 'One Shot Wednesday' on my Image & Verse poetry/art blog, and on my Writer's Island writing prompt blog.
