ADDICTED

I have caught the poetry bug, and Soup is to blame. I am posting poems, some good and some lame. Concocting new verses is taking up all of my time Now I have even started thinking in full rhyme I read other’s poems, of course I must comment No housework is getting done, is my main lament. When I get a nice comment to a poem I submitted Most of my poems aren’t worthy, I have admitted But I stay up all night in order to politely reply Every minute is filled with poetry, not sure why. I’ve now started to enter unusual poetry contests, Stretching my ability and subjecting me to tests. Learning words and strange ways to compete Limericks, swap quatrains and free verse are a feat I am wondering when will this crazy addiction end If you read this please don’t comment my friend.

I will comment it is an addiction, I was surprised to hear it has only been a year for you, so accomplished, and you are so generous with your comments to others. It is a fine community.

A wonderful complimentary comment Terry. Thank you so very much. I have been away from the computer for over a week and realized I have missed so much and have so much "catching up" to do.

Thanx Linda, I honestly cant help myself. Every time I pass the computer I have to look and see if anyone has added another Gem of a poem to delight me, ( For a cute saying my mum said scroll down to my reply to Joe's comment), Cheers Linda.

Wendy, it's a great addiction my dear friend. Sorry for commenting (hehe) but this is well-deserved. We all write from our hearts and that's what makes poetry great. As lame as one might think, there is great meaning to everything we put into it. Some just see it differently. You're doing a wonderful job...keep up the positive vibes. Nicely done! Charlie

I have been on Soup for nearly a year, and what you are saying Deb, I definitely hear. Your thoughts are exactly the same as mine, and I would agree if I had the time. Lots to do, I must go, your thoughts are valued as you know.

We are all addicted to poetry. I look forwards to your comments. I hope to do the same too, my friend Wendy.

For a moment my reply will get off the track, cause as I look back, I would like to tell you about some I miss, now that they have moved away cause their farms are now residential homes. These families, the Attards and Zammits and Borgs, Camilleris, Vellas, Farrugias, , Galeas, Micallefs , Buhagiars , Spiteris and Azzopardis. Such wonderful friends I miss them all. Thanks for your comment Victor Best regards Wendy.
