Poetry Soup Guffaws

My Soup friends are out of sight
When I’m lonely in the night
Their poems I read
And come up to speed
And everything seems alright

Poems in shapes and sizes
Poets in different guises
Some are really hot
Their words hit the spot
So welcome to the prizes!!

Some write of nature and plants
Though not one about the ants 
Some hot body parts
Some mention the arts
While others write raves and rants

Each has a story to tell
Most poets are really swell 
Some write about sex
Their great big "dog" Rex
Or how love has turned to hell!

There are lots of contests too
One’s sure to appeal to you
Footles may be fun
Word games and a pun
I stick to the tried and true

I cannot write on demand
Or my muse will have me canned
I write what I feel
And that is my deal
But well wishes to this band!

    This was a nice strand of limericks. I, too, just write what I feel, no matter how it comes... poetry is a part of you wanting to be set free... and should NOT be censored. When people write about writing I get to see so many different angles about what it means to them... and it's always a fun and rewarding journey. Thoroughly enjoyed this!

    Eileen you are a rare creature, one with honesty and sincerity, and in that you have developed poetry, and for a purpose, god gave this to you, you make me, a humble ugly person feel good about what i write, and in that, make me whole!
