Sweet People Of Poetry Soup



How can so many sweet people congregate In only one place at one time What is it that draws them, money or fame No, it's the friendships they all find They're the nicest down to earth happy souls Nothing but love in their hearts So proud to be friends with these gentle folks Makes my days all shiny from the start Surely owe it all to you sweet lovely people We chat almost every single day Friends I've become with such gentle souls You chase all the grey skies away Without Poetry Soup my days would be lost In a sea of nothingness thoughts About ugly stuff happening around the world You guys keep our moods way up top Thank you P-Soupers from deep in my soul You give my life real meaning First thing in the morning until late at night Reason my face is always beaming © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack, you have made such a loving impact on my life, and to do that from simply leaving comments online is a serendipitous event that makes you wonder just how accidental fate really is. Much of our poetry is a sharing of the deepest level of our lives, so when the kindest souls such as yourself identify and encourage the way you do.... Well, you know <3 loves my friend A precious poem

I'd like to say more, but believe it or not, you have left me a blithering babbling idiot! LOL All my love dear friend, Jack xoxoxoxoxoxox

    All those nice things right back at you, our all-year-round Santa!!! We're certainly very fortunate to have you. I have to wonder where you get the time and energy to spread all the good cheer. You're always my first stop for the day because I'm guaranteed a smile. You know we all love you, right? Big hugs and kisses, you one-of-a-kind person and poet. Licia XOXOXOXOXOX

    We enjoy your company... Without you... Dragon would be in a lonely and less happy place. Your poems stir my imagination, and allow Dragon a lot more freedom... Your's and Cathie's friends... PS. Dragon wants to know if Cathie's let you out of your rooms yet? To play in the sun... Dragon used his fire power to unfreeze the bird bath for me yesterday... Thankfully our birdie friends were only slightly singed... But don't worry... The Mary River Turtles Rescue team, administered first aid... LOL

    Read this to Cathie... says she's fallen in love with Dragon! Says she has enough love for both of us! She was also happy to hear your little birdie friends only got slightly singed! Love kooks! That's why I love both you and Cathie! LOL xoxoxoxox
