Life of a “Souper” (Tribute to all Soupers)

Rhyming, chiming, keeping in time,
   Mind of a poet line after line.

Creative, clever, twisting of words,
   Sometimes the rhymes come only in thirds.

Struggle, problems, writers block here,
   Pondering subjects keeping mind clear.

Inspired, encouraged, words now flow,
   Refreshing your mind helping you grow.

Excited, wired, publishing your work,
   Waiting for comments going berserk.

Scared, afraid, that no one will like,
   The words you wrote may cause a strike.

Praises, glory, come flooding your way,
   Sharing thoughts from your words displayed.

Growth, rebirth, are traits from the soup,
   Accepted by all part of the group.

    Writers block does not exist, if nothing else; describe a kiss. Believe or not that is very hard to do without getting turned on.-AA

    You certainly capture the way Soupers' poems keep us pondering subjects we would otherwise ignore. But we shouldn't be afraid that our work will not be well received. If it "speaks" to just one individual, even the writer himself, that should meet the goal of self-fulfillment. Nice tribute the work and processes that envelop all writers. Each wants to be heard, no doubt. Love, Carolyn
