Fellow Soupers

Let me begin by saying Thank-you
For making me feel welcome where I am new

Although I've been writing for twenty-two years 
I have much to learn from incredible peers

Individuals with style and grace
Where originality wins first place

Humbled am I to be among such talents
Each comment brings a sense of balance

Wishing to meet, to come face to face
Relishing in the idea if only a taste

After years of thinking no one was there 
To come to find so many more care

All share a bond through writing and words
Each unique like a flock of exotic birds

Honored to be among others with a passion like my own
Knowledge surrounds me, unlike any I've ever known
