The Face of PoetrySoup

Blog Posted:5/6/2013 2:42:00 PM


Have you ever wondered who or what PoetrySoup is? Well, I have. It is like having a pen friend without ever making contact.... a bit unnerving. The facebook website last showed an entry by the Admin dated December last year.

Any thoughts on the matter, folks?

I would love to hear what you think.

    What I have found to be the most surprising...(as I'm outside looking into my own face.... the usual me, the normally skeptic and overly cautious person that I I've always been in my 'real' life.....) is how easily it has become to be so comfortable here. When I first nervously posted on the Soup 4 years ago, I was brand new as an internet "joiner"....never put myself out there ever before, and was rather uneasy about the whole idea. Now, PS is like a 2nd home, a 2nd family.....I know and truly care about so many of my cyber friends....I would never before have dreamed this 'connection' we have here! Who's behind the voice of Oz ?? It doesn't matter, they have given me something invaluable.

    Ruben, very interesting and Betty---I agree "We are MARSHALL, we are MARSHALL!" In so many words---what is the park down the road where we loved or the beach where on some night we lit candles on the blanket and just looked at the stars and----who knows--but like the park or the beach I'm glad it's here and I'm glad Ruben and Betty and everyone is here---enough, before ------:D---but isn't that what it is---and I don't really care who's behind the curtain---unless they become a spy or a pain in the whatever!!!

    Through our poems, our comments, our passion, our behaviors, our friendship, our different personalities, our different cultures, our love for poetry, our virtues and vices ... "We" are Poetry Soup. We can do it better or worse; it depends on us. ; )

    I think it is a place for people with feelings and something to say to be heard in a non-judgmental way. I never feel nervous or not good enough to put anything on this site. I have found everyone generous and kind. I think PoetrySoup is us. Betty
