    thousands of seedlings uproot

    Hi, John...I like to congratulate you for your winning poem in Carol's Contest Waiting For Spring. I like the imaginary you use to describe the spring is so poetic and mysterious. May you win many more in the near future. I wish success in your acting and writing endeavors. Have a wonderful day and God bless you. Kindest Regards, Andrew.

    Hi John .. just to let u know I am leaving the Soup.. and have removed my poem from your curreent contest.. due to overwhelming criticism of my three way collaboration with Jared Pickett and Sam Brooks.. it is in my best interest to leave this site after soup management sent a most unkind notice to me and my "unacceptable" poetry.. therefore I wish u a speedy recovery and good luck with your contest.. .luv.. Linda-Marie

    John, This is a very beautiful spring haiku. A new beginning for life (and for good health...) Even though uprooting occurs, spring follows to bring in another round. And that's the beauty of live. God be with you. Lovingly, Dane Ann
