One Shot Poetry Wednesday - Week 16


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - Week 16

On behalf of all the team at One Stop Poetry, I welcome you to another One Shot Wednesday. I am Pete Marshall & I will be your host this evening.

Over the last couple of weeks I haven't been around as much as i would like and actually missed out on lasts weeks One Shot, which was an amazing week of poetry. Those who know me and follow my work will understand the reasons why but I would still like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have forwarded kind words of support over the last few weeks...you know who you are and I thank you immensely from the bottom of my heart,

Anyway enough of that, I am back and looking forward to yet another amazing feast of poetic brilliance! 

When we started One Shot we had a dream and with all your help & support that dream has become a reality! One Stop Poetry has become a platform to help promote your work and bridge the path towards publication, once published it is also there as your friend to help you on your continued journey. 

If you're new to OSW, here's how it works:

1) post a poem on your blog
2) Link your poem to One Shot using Mr Linky, where the prompt asks put the URL for the poem there. The URL is the web address for your poem
3) Visit other One Shot Poets. Tell them how you feel when your are reading, encourage and interact with them
4) Tell others about OSW by including a link to this page on your post

Once again thank you for taking part & let the festivities begin

Everybody's taste is different, but I really enjoy Steven Marty Grant's verse. Please give us a heads-up on this thread if you know other writers who write w/ similar semantic intensity.
