and post notes and photos about your poem like Krish Radhakrishna.
This is compilation of verse written by poetry soup poets in my poetry contest! The names of each of the poets is given below each stanza!
congrats to all who feature here and for their contributions.
Woven are these pages in poetic verse,
With bare threads of our deepest feelings,
You will find laughter, tears and remorse,
and words of wisdom, prayer and healings.
The words herein form an anthology of love
From the pens of poets from around the world
It's a love only possible through God above
Creating a bond of friendship freely unfurled.
The poet mines the cave for treasures sought,
Walls encrusted with images from the past.
Chipping away at a long forgotten thought,
Emerging with gold nuggets at long last.
Metaphors and simile express the fire,
that smolder in the bosom of a writer,
who only seeks to send to you with fond desire,
a verse to make our weary lives much brighter.
Sorrows drip from our pens so poignantly,
Elegantly too our joys are expressed,
We can even imagine things we cannot see,
With imagery, our loveliest thoughts are dressed.
Where pen meets paper, the words abound,
Words of men and women of every race and creed,
No greater conglommerate will there be found,
Words which sow seeds that the whole world needs.
We write for we must, and our words pouring out,
can never be stopped, for as our words surge -
like rivers to the ocean we flow; without doubt,
we are one and the same as together we merge.
The entry of Divine words must be first,
because they always have the deepest meanings,
And they are able to quench our deepest thirst,
In spite of all our ailments and other misgivings.
Such highlight gratitude-assertions today,
Rippling with blissful hope for tomorrow,
Dispelling woes breathed-out by yesterday,
Assuring God’s presence midst blessings’ flow…
Reverberating rhymes of earnest praise**
Faith-propped exhortations despite grievous pain;
Odes and sonnets exalting triumphant grace
Keep driving poetry spirit to reign.
Emerald emotive urge surges in opulence
on rhythmic passionate flow of poems.
Earnest yearning rippling on relevance.
Verses shining, glowing, sparkling like gems.
Sentiment, sapience, and vehemence,
aroma of dormant dreams in rapture
on charming display of sensuous sentence
projecting past, present and future.
Poets polish leather letters with feather fingers,
Every word wild like the waves of the ocean,
Passionate paragraphs parade with clingers,
Full moon highlights heights of heavenly motion.

Misty movement that marks the poem’s destiny
Gossamer souls swim interweaving with words
Watercolor waterfalls wisp magic into eternity
For poetry forever seasons its forest of birds
Chantelle Anne Cooke
Deep in this poignancy you may immerse
That humiliation you are concealing,
Grief and joy both may be the source
To which self-expression is appealing.
If words were gold coins in a silken purse,
We would seek their worth in our dealings,
And we would wish to have recourse
To those gifts of verse they are revealing.
Slander blossoms, having no real root;
critics water down truth with vexation.
Taking issue with points that are moot
they harvest lies and fabrication.
Reason A Poteet
Letting us live life in situations so diverse
bestow tranquility under unsure reelings
each moment felt, understood, of course
on path of faith, gratitude and kneelings.
Tapestry of textures, rough and smooth entwined,
Interlacing suffering and joy,
Satin strands of blessing lovingly designed
Tangled knots attempting to destroy.
Paths are set before us, history unfurled,
Warnings and instruction to be heard,
Faith and hope encouraged in a fickle world,
Treasure to unlock within the word.
Take the wisdom and guidance from these pages
Take each and every single word to heart.
Trust and follow where the wisdom leads you
This knowledge is now for you to impart.
