Queens of the Soup

I dedicate this poem
To five poets that sing
Their words to the world
They are poets ... everything

Sometimes they are travellers
Capturing mountain and shore
Sometimes philosophers
Delving the depths I adore

Sometimes they are rulers
Tender and just
Sometimes they are lovers
Naked in grief ... and lust

Mayhap they're a joker
Here to tickle my funny
Or slap my hand
When I eat the bunny (that's you PD)

You are painters of magic
And carvers of life
Poetry is everywhere
Revealed by your knife

So, to Andrea Dietrich and Heather Ober
To Laura Breidenthal and Poet Destroyer
And to Nette Onclaud
Wherever you are ...

I say thanks for your words,
Your comments, and inspiration
You are Queens of the Soup
In this poetry nation

*for Sandy's dedication contest

    Caleb, it's an honor for me to be on this list by a poet who I feel is such a talented writer. Thanks so much for this sweet tribute. I do not know Laura as well as the others, but I know I love the poetry of all these other ladies. Naturally this one is going to get a FAVE from me, but don't use it in my FAVE contest because I want you to use one of the others that I have faved of yours. FIND them before the contest runs out.!!

    Thank you :) And I see that Caleb wrote a really funny prose poem/short story about hunting, so you're off the hook!
