Warm Soup

For a week or two
my soup was cold

my thoughts and rhymes
weren't in the bowl

now the soup begins to warm
and my words are free to form

    Hi Mark - I can see that this was written awhile ago, but I just jumped into the soup a few weeks ago, and just wanted to say I do love this poem. You say so much with a one powerful metaphor and a few words.

    Dear Mark, thank you for asking about me. I'm still at the site but not as much as I used to be. I see you haven't posted a new poem in awhile either. Hope you are still writing. I've been trying to get a better balance with my writing and getting back to submitting for print publication. I enjoyed reading this poem again today. Have a wonderful weekend. Karen

    What a great poem! I love the simplicity of it and the unusual analogy. It's very clever!

    Mark, where are you? You turned the soup pot on and left the stove. The pot is running over. Time for you to get back here and clean up the mess you left behind. Love, Carol

    Dear Mark - I know the feeling...we call it writer's block? I, myself, experience these lapse(s)... often. LOL! No need to worry though - you've created a wonderful community here at PSoup. Never a moment goes by when one can/can't click onto this site and be "poetically" rejuvenated again! You and your team have done a great job here. I thank you for that. Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy New Year. Best wishes and peace always, John

    Awesome write. I hate it when my "soup" gets cold! Very clever. Not looking forward to those statements. (lol). Happy Holidays and dig into that soup! Love Robin
