It's hard to pick just one

` I have so many friends on soup, it’s hard to pick just one To narrow down to just a few, it just cannot be done Heidi always brings a smile Brenda tempts my heart Sandy posts poetic dreams Connie’s whispered art Gershon really makes me laugh Maureen, she can write Hello There and Andrea make my mornings bright John, who makes the soupers sing Nina, she’s a hoot Kim can pen most anything Pixie’s words so cute Sunlite you are number one you’ve always been my friend I’m sorry I omitted you it won’t happen again Anne-lise always makes me think Ilene sure can rhyme Brandy’s thoughts are beautiful Eve makes poems shine Limericks are Jan’s forte Affection is Cay Cay Alexis, Chantelle, Carolyn take my breath away A warrior who floats on wings A very Silent One Bobby May bring happiness and Spock, no wait, his son Disco, Beth and Jeanne are new at least they are to me Janice, Tania, Sandra Weiss much talent in these three Line and LuLoo and Dear Heart well, what more can I say So many poets I call friend on any given day There are a few from long ago when I first found this site I can’t forget to mention them, it just would not be right Charmaine, I miss her the most Paloma just as much White Wolf wrote some crazy stuff Darren had the touch Agnes, Leanna, Anne-Marie all were friends of mine Becca, Dale, Lisa, Sue Poetry so fine Christy, Daniel, Freddy, Lin so many from the past Forever doesn’t happen now it seems some things don’t last But back to what I’m trying to say, before this poems’ done So many here that I admire, it’s hard to pick just one So, thank you all for all you do, the kindness that you show I’m blessed by every one of you and wanted you to know Inspired by but not written for Bobby May’s Pick A friend on Soup poetry contest Oh hell, I going to enter it anyway. I know it won't win because it doesn't follow the rules but rules are meant to be broken, right?

Of course Andrea. It wouldn't be a poem about friends on Soup if you weren't included
Date: 9/27/2019 7:43:00 PM
OH, Chris, you did a poem similar to the way I chose to do it one time when we were asked to choose a friend (or maybe the allowed multiples, I don't remember ; it was so long ago) I had such a time trying to get everybody into the poem, so I appreciate your "rule breaking' to do this lovely tribute for this current contest. Congrats on your win. you rock!

Thanks so much Sandy. I wasn't going to enter but like my notes at the bottom of the poem say I figured, what the hell. I thought maybe if it placed high enough in the contest, others who are mentioned in it might see it.

Thanks Chris happy to be among the friends you mentioned, it is a very encouraging site, and you make it better!

This was a delight to read Chris. Thank you so much for including me. You were able to brilliantly include so many poets that I too adore on this site. The last time I had to choose I did the same thing as you and wrote "Tribute to Poetry Soupers". I am certain this beautiful piece will be celebrated by many Chris. I loved it and it is going into my Faves! : ) xxoo
