Poetry Soup Is A Blessing



This Poetry Soup is a blessing to me Allowing me the chance to meet So many wonderful people round the world Making the circle complete Never before has this ever been possible Could lead to better understanding Know this sounds like a grandiose idea Can never tell where it's landing Have to start somewhere, why not here Promoting peace and harmony With all the great minds presiding here Offering a peaceful philosophy Do I sound out of touch, a bit off the wall Oblivious to how the world works Not at all I insist, if we all band together Round the bend world harmony lurks I know, I know, this man is a dreamer Smoking up some funny weeds Just leave me alone as I dream of Utopia Never know where this all may lead This Poetry Soup is a blessing to me Allowing me the chance to meet So many wonderful people round the world Making the circle complete © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack, I;m chuffed. This poem is just marvellous and reflects yet again, the uniqueness of your style- poet who is like a journalist alert to every creature that stirs, observing life's comings and goings with an accuracy only bestowed from Above! Thanks JM

    Indeed, Kenny. I do take breaks from time to time but I always gravitate back here. It simply cannot be helped. Hey, bruv, you'd better have a look-see at my "Fave poets meet". We have a meeting of sorts there. It's of the virtual kind, but no mind. Enjoy, my friend. Licia ;-)

    lol. I know your birth name is Charles (or Carles, as you sometimes prefer). I remember well the poem you wrote about the confusion with your names. I like the idea of Kenny. Then again, I named you "Father Christmas" in my "Fave Poets Meet". Not only do you look like the legend, but you also spread good cheer. Huggeroonies right back at ya, Kenny .. Charles .. Carles .. Father Christmas. XOXOXOX Licia

    If you my friend, Jack, are a dreamer then I am a lunatic for all my life I am fighting to promote the dream you are talking about: World peace! I went as far as to study...philosophy!God bless you my friend for raising your voice for love and universal brotherhood! Yes, God bless Poetrysoup and all its members! Excellent!

    Based on the history of us homo sapiens and our penchant for conflict, I'm probably just blowing smoke! BUT I guess we gotta start somewhere! Thanks my good friend!
