My Little Wish For Poetry Soup

Too many poets, and so little time
Yet joined together, in this world of rhyme

A little peek here, a little peek there
We surely touch lives, as our souls we bare

It shouldn’t matter, the country or race
Or that all we see, is each other’s face

What matters are words, that capture our dreams
They do grace our souls, the world better seems

Words that can touch, are the words that can heal
Words that embrace, make us able to feel

This place gives solace, this place gives a smile
When the world is cruel, this place is worthwhile

There are some problems, we aren’t divine
But friendships formed are so precious, so fine

I come to escape, I come here to grow
You touch my poor heart, much more than you know

Let’s guard this place; put around it a hedge
Be kind to each other, make this our pledge

Poet dreamers, we all seek the ideal
So please strive to love, for that makes life REAL

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    This is such a beautiful message of friendship and love that reaches beyond our words, or borders, or different nationalities, and beyond our poems. Just lovely!

    One of your flowiest, Eileen! And yes I know that's not a real word ;) I do so agree with the "so little time" reference. I feel a bit neglectful at times when I can't get back with people... I try my best though!

    Flowiest....I LIKE IT! You can coin a new word! Well, the superlative is most flowing, but I like this one! :) I've missed ya, and you've neglected me some, but I forgive ya! Isn't that what friends are for??? I haven't been too good lately either....Too busy! Will jump in when the semester is over. Hugs!

    PS is the rare exception where words are actually louder than actions. Go fig. There is a very nice ring of truth to this. Very, very well done, Eileen.

    forgotten words from previous message... I really like the line "Poems grace our souls...." although, I may have phrased it "WORDS instead of poems"--all a matter of semantics! Your thoughts are gracious and altruistic...a good way to start a week!

    Ooooppppssss! This seems to be a regular happening. This fudge up! ;( Mr Seal....you are ever kind, ever gracious, every naughty!!! ;) Desert Orchid is being watered well! :) No....I am NOT starting one of those discussions....I just want to make love not war! ;) Hugs!

    Thanks ever so much! I do appreciate the advice. I used words a couple of times...and rhymes so I had little choice left! :) Thanks, Victoria for the kind words!

    Awwwwwww This is a little beauty Eileen, you are so right, true true true. I think mostly it's misunderstandings and it's easy to get carried away on the keyboard. Oh you're not trying to open another one of those discussions are you. All food for thought though. Take care, Richard

    WOW! Great plan, Victoria! I'm all for that! Thanks for the visit!
  1. Date: 6/17/2013 10:25:00 AM

    I try to critique in private emails, and praise in public...time consuming, but it is my small effort to encourage.....maybe someone else has a better plan?

    Well this is a mighty little write indeedy Eleen, I must say..where do we stop helping and start causing pain to others?? do we realise?? I know I do it intentionally..? unintentionally.." or is it just conceit to think that ( i know that)..who knows, maybe words just seem harsh when they are true, I have heard alcholics need to reaise they are such before improvement starts..who suggests this.? are the popular..? maybe after.?,,?????

    Joe--is there a reason that humiliation must be done in public? Can't you take the time to send a private email for vitriol? Just a thought.
    Ghali Avatar Eileen Ghali Date: 6/17/2013 10:09:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Hi Joe....unintentional hurt is easily forgiven...intentional hurt is harder to forgive. Premeditated hurt.....is the worst kind. I must admit, it does make us stronger, but...that's a lesson I would gladly skip. Hurt from a friend brings healing. If you have time, Read my poem Wounds of a Friend. Yes....the first step is always to admit. I've had friends wound me because they wanted me to grow and mature. It hurt, but it helped. Thanks for the post!
