One Shot Wednesday - Poetry Week 13


Welcome to another One Shot Wednesday. I'm Moondustwriter (aka Leslie Moon) hosting this round of poetry. I have to say we have all been taken aback by the response from poets who come to our site. I hope you agree that there are well written, thought provoking pieces posted each week. Thanks to each of you for your friendship and for inspiring me to be a better poet.
If this is your first week, please comment so we can welcome you properly.

Here is the format for those of you just starting
1. Write a poem
2. Come to One Shot Tuesday night or anytime Wednesday and put in the necessary information on Mr Linky. If Mr Linky is down you will need to put the URL in the comment box. The URL is the web page address of your poem
3. Leave a comment (we love to hear from you)
4. Take a few moments to read a poem or two and give some words of kindness. I personally like constructive criticism but if you do that keep it positive.We have poets of all levels. I know how much it means when the reader can give the poet some encouragement. Thanks all of you for always knowing the right thing to say. 

Have a great One Shot Wednesday

Thank you all for your help in posting to this site. I am very happy to be amongst other poets. It's a lonely enough life without poetical company!

I'm publishing my third book in a few short months, "White Cranes of Heaven" with Lulu.com. This time it's all seasonal poetry....50 poems of the year's cycle.

I'm impressed with what I have read so far (just today) on your site. This is a really good mix of poems. I'll reread carefully and try to give some critical comments. I'm reading things now that help in this poetry criticism. It ain't easy, but I don't believe that poetry is so subjective that it's really impossible to critique. It's more than rhyme, meter, foots (feets??) but there's also that intangible commodity....what strikes at the experience or emotions of the readers. The stuff that makes the all-important connection between writer and reader.

Thanks for welcoming me to this site.

Hi, I have just found your site - I was directed here by a friend, and will enjoy checking out all your work. Even the names of the poets are intriguing! Here's to poetry! Am going to plunge in and feast on the offerings.

Ben Langhinrchs said...

I posted my poem. I'd also like to invite any readers to post a haiku (or more) on Twitter in support of Banned Books Week with the hashtag #bannedbookshaiku. Feel free to read and retweet any you like that are already out there (including one by Pete Marshall).

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 here.

I posted a couple links to share some of my work. Feel free to explore my site when you visit.

I am pleased to have posted a link to 'One Shot Wednesday' on my Image & Verse poetry/art blog, and on my Writer's Island writing prompt blog.

patty Sherry said...

Greetings my fellow poets, I'm working in Brooklyn this week with my co-writer, a self imposed intense writing session...finally working on "that book" but this poem rang in my head at 3am Tuesday morning. Hope you all enjoy and i will visit your sites during my much needed breaks... :)

Jerry said...

Long day at work but it still be Wednesday...barely. I lift my glass to all my new poet friends.

moondustwriter said...

I've been having a great read this evening.
We appreciate your taking the time to comment and encourage each other.
Please do not feel the need to read through and comment on each poem. If you have oodles of time I know how it is appreciated - but I know that a few words of encouragement go a long way. Our goal most certainly is not to burn our gracious poets out. Poetry should be enjoyed like a good wine not plowed through.
Savor these fine poems...and thank you!!!!

Lovely Annie said...

Salutations to All!

My poem is up! Thanks for all the wonderful comments from last week!

Hi friends, this is my new website, finally live and I have recorded a poem about LOVE. You may have read this one before but now you can listen if you want to. xo

CherylFaith said...

Hello :)

I feel thrilled to meet you all! I feel quite shy at entering my work, as I haven't done so in a few years, but I know you are kind - Hearted people.

Thank you so very much for Reading! I look forward to Reading as many Poems as possible! I love to Read Poems & Dreams which my sister and brother Poets compose.

I tend toward extremely verbose, but for the Moment, I think I've told you enough. Please ask me if you'd like to know more.

I'm eager to Read Your Writing!

Thank you so much for Being.

PeaceLove&Smiles, CherylFaith

Malcolm Miller said...

I am astounded by the number of people who have read and commented favourably on one of my poems. I am so grateful to One Stop Poetry for making it possible. I think more people have read this poem here than anywhere since I wrote it, and published it, in one of my books. This is such an exciting site – I wonder when I will ever be able to read the work of all the fine poets here!

Pblacksaw said...

I may not have done this right.. I am sure someone will be glad to let me know.. I have read a lot of great poetry on the links.. thanks!

Late-- my villanelle resisted completion, but it is finally up! Looking forward to reading Lucky 13 after work!

Fireblossom said...

Moonie Friend, I am just now having the time to go visiting, but Wednesday is over. So, is it against the rules to do it on Friday? Please say yes, because I will have far more fun if I feel I am breaking a rule. Thank you for your attention to this matter. ;-)

Shashi said...

Ok, Finally I read all of the 116 postings and commented on most of them as I almost liked every one of the posting.. some I could not do because of various reasons like not accepting or has to join in WordPress or something like that..but that does not mean that I have not read them or liked..

Thanks One Stop Poetry team for gathering up such a talented bunch peers at one place for me.... and friends like me who love a good verse...Cheers!!!
