Poetry Soup - Whatta Blast

Friends I've made on Poetry Soup Are the greatest bunch for sure Inspiring me with words of praise They make my spirits soar How'd I live before coming here? What a boring life I led Unknowing in my ignorance Now I'm overjoyed instead From many nations far and wide We meet and share the joy With pretty little rhyming words Like coy, deploy and toy Happy in my advancing years To have found a place to dwell Creative juices unrestrained Flow forth and start to jell Before too long I smile again In a happy place once more Rhythms are good, words just right I'm ready to post my score Most times silly, sometimes sad But each one's from the heart Haven't felt joy like this before A blast right from the start! © Jack Ellison 2013

    I am in complete agreement. I just randomly found this place. I can't believe in only two months the difference in my writing. I wrote probably 10 poems in this last year and over 30 already in these two months and overall the quality is better. You are an inspiration for sure. No matter what's going on, I always get a smile from at least one of your poems, if not all of them, and many times a message as well. People like you make this place as good as it is.

    I belonged to another site for three years before stumbling on this one. Much prefer P-Soup... less competitive... more fun... nicer people on the whole! Seems like you are in total agreement! You are too too kind, my very good friend! Thanks a BUNCH!

    I LOVED THIS JACK! I feel the same way and I've told friends and family how much I appreciate being part of this group. I found a place to belong with people who are like minded. Awesome! I love reading your work!

    I consider it a great triumph to get others like you to read my poems and let me read yours. I've been a little behind on my writting due to dog illness and my foot. It's better so trying to get house cleaned up, and yard... ect... When I got home from taking care of my Dad this place was kinda gross then I messed up my foot and had to wait... Everything was giving me the willies... dirty...dirty... dirty. Cathie will understand my delima. Glad PS was here to distract me... and you, my friends.

    Cathie is very organized shall we say! Sometimes have trouble keeping up! LOL But I don't know what I'd do without my sweetie! Slow down Ms. Carol, take things easy... life takes care of itself. Huggeroonies! xox
