One Shot Poetry Wednesday (Week 26)


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday!

Hello, Everyone! I'm Adam Dustus, your host for this week's OSW. As 2010 draws to a close, it is my pleasure to begin the festivities for our final One Shot of this year. Before beginning, I'd like to officially welcome Gay Cannon (beachanny) to The One Stop Team. We are extremely fortunate for her skillful help (in addition to her overall wonderfulness); and in case you missed it, check out her excellent Monday post on a familiar face from One Shot Wednesday, Anthony Desmond Scott

*Also, don't forget about the One Shot Wednesday "Best of the First 6 Months Anthology." If you entered a poem in weeks 1 - 25, then you are eligible. Please refer to One Shot Wednesday Anthology for more information.

Okay, enough with the speeches, let's get right into it....
If you are new to our weekly poetry meme, here are the guidelines:

1) Write a poem (due to the growing number of links, please post 1 poem)

2) Link your post to One Shot via Mr Linky (put in your name & URL of poem)

3) Please visit the poetry sites of other One Shot poets & provide feedback

4) And don't forget to invite others to join in our community of online poets!

*All forms of poetry are accepted.

Thank you for your participation & support,
dustus

Hello there! Happy One Shot Wednesday everyone!

If you go there and have some extra time, please check 'Sitting with ghosts', too, it's the previous poem. =*

Hi dear poets
Glad to be here again today.

Anybody knows?

Thanks and Happy New yera everyone!
Hugs

bumfuzzled said...

I'll beg the groups' forgiveness in not understanding that I should have written a new tidbit of poesy to link to instead of entire blog. I'm learning, and Maker willing I'll do better next week :)

HisFireFly said...

May blessings and joy and and abundance of new words fill the new year ahead for each and every one of you!

Gwen Dubeau said...

Hello,

APalmerPoetry said...

Hey guys, hope you had a great Xmas holiday. Looking forward to tommorrow's One Shot (I'm in the UK). Mine is an old one, but i was experimenting with stanzas increasing by one line in length each time, all rhyming. It was difficult! Hope you like. Can't wait to get around some of yours :) Arron

Always Write said...

bumfuzzled said...

Carys said...

Happy to be taking part in this wonderfully creative event once again. Thanks guys.

hedgewitch said...

Mine this week is the first sestina of two loosely based on two festivals from the neopagan Wheel of the Year, Yule and Candlemas. Hopefully this first one makes sense on its own, even though you have to wait for next week for the thrilling conclusion. And Happy New Year!

katrin said...

Hi! i just leave a quick note here, because i really want to go to 'where dreams move slowly'. Thank you for all those links to amazing poetry.

Brian Miller said...

Alegria Imperial said...

I must thank you all again for a great yearender for me on this site! Wednesdays and Sundays have never been and will never be the same again. Poetry rules! Even through the holidays. Happy New Year to all!!!

patty sherry said...

Hi friends,

It's cold outside but warm in poetryland.....

rToady said...

I don't know about you, but I'm always blue right after Christmas, so I posted another holiday poem to help with the holiday withdrawal. Also, thanks for all the comments these last couple of weeks. Always remember that poetry is like a lit stick of dynamite tied to the neck of a chihuahua. (I almost typed "three-legged chihuahua", but that seemed like overkill. Restraint being the better part of valor and all that.)

marousia said...

Happy New Year everybody - there are some superb poems this week :)

Victoria said...

Glad to be here and look forward to some wonderful poetry--I've posted a Sestina. A challenging form!

Sorry I'm late. I missed the first 26 weeks. I'm number 98. Hello!

Chris G. said...

Welcome Gay! You're a fabulous addition to the team. As we enter the new year, it will be a pleasure working with you, as it has been working with the rest of you here at one stop in the past year...and to all those wonderful poets out there: thank you for the support for One Stop this year. It's been an honor and a pleasure speaking with all of you, and sharing in the art we all so love.

Happy New Year!

moondustwriter said...

I don't normally post two poems for One Shot. This one came through tears for two sweet friends who just lost a parent.
Many of you will understand that loss and the sorrow.

Pete Marshall said...

Due to the many delays in travel, I thought this Haiku was appropriate for today.

I have spent much time thinking on the changing of the year today. Little room for words, but I have a short few for you.

brokenpenwriter said...

Having worked for six weeks under deadlines, and another five more weeks of deadline to go, I found myself with space on my desk this morning. What a lovely way to celebrate the last day of the year. I can't wait to start reading my favorite bloggers' works and meeting new ones as well. Today I'll soak up all you writers out there. Tomorrow - back to work!! Thanks So Much, One Stop for your great service to poets and artists. You guys are truly inspirational.

Rallentanda said...

Happy New Year everyone. You are invited to join in by writing additional verses to my New Years
Collaborative Poem. Let's see how long we can keep it going for.
