Long Live the Soup

Fear not my poetic companions As you traverse our treasured Soup. And find utterances of blessed joy From our small but plucky group. Words to slake a tattered heart And make better the dregs that oft occur. Where your soul will sing and dance When offered its vibrant written words. If romance be the tale that stirs Your spirit to soar among the clouds. And you dream of a chance encounter Where a mate stands out among the crowd. With your eyes locked in frenzied purpose As you both grasp with time and space. Then the Soup is where you're sure to find Such a poem to salt one's amorous taste. When a Mother passes beyond the light And grief makes dark the light of day. Where hopelessness creates a tangled void And despondency is sure to have its way. A poem will provide a few measured words To make ripe this bitter fruit. Because no matter your slings and arrows... You have friends within the Soup. The End *To those who might be interested. I will be posting my cartoon 'Bob's Your Uncle' on my homepage. A new one will appear every second day or so.

Hello David, A wondrously written poem in every respect!! Conceiving, developing, and writing quality poetic verse is certainly worthy of the time and effort that all of us as "poets" put into crafting memorable poetry. The "Soup" for me has always been a place of encouragement and shared-interests among many writers who have a devout passion for writing poetry and sharing them with others in the Poetry Soup forum. Some of us have actually gone to publish books of poetry too. Best Wishes, Gary
