Our First Annual PoetrySoup Convention- Vegas Style


In Las Vegas is where we will be
for the night life is something to see.
We can take in a show
and then let the wine flow;
but the daytime is for poetry!

Any member of Poetry Soup
may attend. Let me give you the scoop:
on the first day at noon
we will gather and swoon
at the readings of all in our group.

Where we meet, it will be like a fair
with food and fun, seeing who’s there
with our very own eyes,
checking out gals and guys.
Who’s got flair, and who’s still got their hair?

On a weekend we’ll do this in fall,
reading fave poems inside a huge hall.
One poem each; make it short
or we’ll have to abort!
Then we’ll mingle and dance. Have a ball!

A gathering like this would be so much fun, Andrea. Guess we'd have to wear name tags if there's a good turnout. Enjoyed the humor, especially the part about still having hair. :) Wouldn't it be great if we all got to know each other? It would help build the community here. Great entry for Line's contest! Hugs, Carolyn

Only if they want. Personally, I think that part is boring!

Sounds delightful, however, I have asthma and cannot breathe the Las Vegas air. I used to live there, it is where I developed asthma. Love it for the rest of you. Lovely take on the contest, my friend.

I never got to see shows there. Only just really quick drive-bys. I always really wanted to spend a good weekend there.
