Greeting-card - to fellow SOUPERS

a message to my friends here @ the soup :+) 

over here 
it is the season
to withdraw from daily life
think I have
more than one reason
to do just that 

if all goes well
as expected 
I really hope
someone will tell
tomorrow
in a few days 
or at least soon

I'll be on my way
for a while
I bet
there are moments
I long for a cup of soup
together with you

I'll disconnect
for sure 
from the internet
just a few weeks
nothing to intercept
nothing for a while
the space  I need 
the place I want  
some kind of tenantless isle

could be at home
very well
or we'll hire
for some weeks
a mobile home
and collect
much needed new  energy

after a week
or two - maybe three
or even more
I'll seek
my way back 

won't be sending cards
or messages
or sneak secretly in here 

need to re-group
after another year
in which too much 
came so near

time for a thorough clear
of my my mind 
need to take a break
and re-energize
to return totally awake
and refreshed
full of inspiration
for my homely  bowl of soup
together with you
