Congratulations to One Stop Poetry's Chris G! (& Picture Prompt Challenge)

One Stop Poetry would like to express gratitude and best wishes to our partner and poetic, journalist friend, Chris G. A few short hours ago, Chris graduated from Michigan State University. While completing his coursework (in addition to interning for the Lansing City Pulse as both a reporter and a photographer), he has done an incredible job making Sundays on One Stop a special day for both featured photographers and poets.
Your help's invaluable
Enjoy the moment

Well Done Chris the hard work was worth it
all the best 

You have worked so hard
four long years
toiled and strained 
I'll drop the refrain

Well done
our fellow poet
talent galore
displayed on your mortar board

Now go out
into the world
and show your merit
One Stop's opening the first bottle of Claret 

~Love and best wishes from the ~

Congrats Chris 
and all the best wishes
as you step off into the next phase. 
So good to have you around here at One Stop 
with your amazing talent

The One Shoot Sunday interview will be back next weekend.

For today's picture prompt challenge, I was thinking One Shoot Sunday should take a road trip! Hope you're all feeling inspired to accept the challenge and share your lines with us. Thanks for participating!

Chris G. said...

Haha, aw thanks you guys! You're too kind! It's really been an honor working with you all - and that you would all take the time for this...greatest team ever! Hopefully that open road treats me kindly.

It's been a great day all around, and this is the perfect way to end it. Whatever lies ahead...I sure know I'm looking forward to taking the trip with all you fine folks at the One Stop!

Now about that Claret... :P

I became so fascinated with the photo that I looked up the photographer -- and there's a fascinating story of photography there. Great prompt (and my congratulations to Chris, too).

Congratulations to Chris. A lot of work and effort and time, and I'm sure all well worth it.

My poem is not exactly congratulatory, but it is about the open road.

Glad to join in on One Stop Poetry. Love the photograph. Reminds me of driving through Southern California.
