One Shot Wednesday - Week 18


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - Week 18

On behalf of all the team at One Stop Poetry, I welcome you to another One Shot Wednesday. 
I am Claudia Schönfeld and will for the first time be your host this evening.

Since One Shot Wednesday got started, it soon became one of my weekly highlights. 
I enjoy the poetry, the amazing creativity and the different personalities and styles.
It's such a good place to learn from one another and get inspired by each other's writings and - last but not least - meet fantastic people and build relationships!

Thank you for taking part and - let the fun begin!


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

Thanks again for doing this. I've been out of town off and on for several weeks and really missed reading all the submissions.

See, you pause to think, and they sneak in while you're not looking.

Maureen said...

Thank you for hosting.

I ask that readers focus on the poem and not the event that was its inspiration.

My poem today is dedicated to a cyber friend in Brisbane, someone who always encourages me to write Haiku, though I don't think I can handle it.


Kiss you all.

The Exception said...

It is all about the discomfort that comes when touch is desired and unwelcome - the touch of friendship and compassion.

JH said...

In the near future, I may not be posting as many poems to one stop poetry due to other projects.(short stories@ http://wordswrung.blogspot.com

However, I would highly recommend you guys to any poet who desires to share his or her work with other poets. peace and love JHpoetry

We must barter for bread
With an open hand
unbound,
breaking the codes of silence
