One Shot Wednesday - Week 24


Welcome to One Shot Wednesday - Week 24

On behalf of all the team at One Stop Poetry, I welcome you to One Shot Wednesday, Week 24!

I am Claudia Schönfeld and will be your host this evening. As I'm hosting from Germany and we already have 11 pm over here - I will soon leave the party - but this should not keep you from celebrating, reading as many of the poems as you like, chat a bit in the comments section, meet some new friends and enjoy the cumulation of excellent poetry.

I would also like to remind you of the One Stop Anthology - a collection of "Best of One Shot - the first six months", a collection of the best OSW's entries, published under Limited Editions Press Follow the link to read more.

Now let the fun begin - thank you for being here and making One Stop what it is!


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

  • Post a poem on your blog
  • Link your poem to One Shot, using Mr Linky. Where the prompt asks put the URL (web address for your poem) for the poem there.
  • Visit as many other One Shot Poets as you like. Tell them how you feel when your are reading, encourage and interact with them
  • Tell others about OSW by including a link to this page on your post

Welcome everyone to another week of One Shot
If this is your first time please feel welcome to read as many poems as you would like.
We never want people overwhelmed by the volume

Enjoy

Good times anyway. Another One Shot Wednesday!

The Exception said...

Inspired by Brian's One Shot last week, I had visions of winter fairies dancing under th moon as spotlight and surrounded by the sparkling crystals of frost... Instead the pros are about a winter sprite close to my heart!

I put up an unpublished poem, but the sort of dark, comic verse you folks seem to appreciate most among my poems. Let me know what you think: It Can't Be Me

moondustwriter said...

Want to remind all of you about the submissions for the Anthology. Any poem submitted here to One Stop is eligible. I have read many tonight already that would be excellent submissions

Alegria Imperial said...

Thanks again for this space! It's been an exhilarating experience to read and write poems and most of all welcomed by a great number of great poets here. The numbers do overwhelm but as moondustwriter says, we read as many poems and make comments as much as we can.

Late but not least, I'd say. My poem is not that good today, but the picture is worth the visit.

Kiss you all!

Jerry said...

Number 120...hmmm not bad. This time of year for me is very busy.
My job is to help out Santa. So my reading time shrinks...I hope I can stop by many blogs to comment.
I'll try. Merry Christmas
