Meeting the Soupers

I have entered a room filled with handshakes and friendship Sharing hugs here and there, there's a buzz in the air Soupers queued, center stage, with a rhyme and a theme One is reading a poem with applause from the wings There is laughter, and sharing......and a microphone blaring A few poems being read, but no one is hearing, since the chatter is loud, and the crowd's having fun! I'm checking who's here, are they cool, are they new? Is she who I had dreamed behind her avatar screen? Is he who he had seemed as his poetry deemed? How great is this chance, to catch a real glance and see all those faces, my computer just beamed I look for a friend, who has traveled quite far Taking trains, or a plane, in a bus or a car I'm happy to say, they are nicer by far than I'd ever expected.......these Poetry Stars! __________________________________________________________ 10/31/13 ......for Yasmin's Contest: Meeting the Soupers
