Sharks in the Soup

Soup’s unique tides have ebb and flow.
Soup’s currents steer time as it goes
when her poets navigate thru it.
Winds slice all time-sails to tidbits.
Soup’s sea of discovery 
floats each voyage diversely
towards and from the found and missed.
So much to read, many still to meet,
so none coast back to land complete.
Not even a list would assist
with click history that twists.
It is best to simply not resist
the route on which Soup Sharks insist.
Sharks of hurdles swim Soup circles
squeezing time with sharp teeth gurgles
that leave Soupers mere time kernels.

I agree with Line. Cleverly done, Caycay. Good to see you on the winner list. I finally got some time here and now my comments from two days ago have scrolled off so I hope by seeing winner lists I can find all the people who commented to me lately. I know you did several times, and I really appreciate it.

I know, I let you down cause I didn't notice without visual aids as provided audibly, and in written word. All is colored gone, now? Yes? I'm usually an excellent noticer, really! poop on ... CayCay

I know of the other shark feel that I see here and there, hope none has been directed as you because there's no way they've got a real bite to chew on. My write may not be what he's looking for, but truly something chomps short my time on Soup! Poetry hugs ... CayCay
