SOUP SAFARI

SOUP SAFARI , , , , here I am in NYC...packing after a safari –theme night party with Soup members two nights ago, filled with awed revelry. shrieks whistling on linked arms during a photo shoot, as live cheers of Constance and Andrea went “ whoot!” while Debbie and Michael hosted “Tag, you’re ‘It’ “games bringing Nikko and Sara to compete in spelling members’ names… I still remember Robert H. reciting his comic spiels, what a blast! our jaws locked from clapping at Dr. Ram’s impromptu dance act, till Kashinath segued into a sitar rap in his flashy jungle attire prompting Linda to donate PM prizes, much to our hearts’ desire. on our table, an exciting blend of brew amped repartee’s pitches amused by Brian fleshing parts of short forms without glitches, enter wacky Sydney applying geographic values to long verse usage with footnotes on how worlds expand over time from poetic vantage, oh, how Gwen sparkled with pleasantries as cups of jokes poured most memorable of all, the warm personal shares of soupers' world that drew us closer as real people with scraps here and there recalling red-cherry days and funny bloopers’ wear and tear… and as I leave from 8th street hailing a taxi to catch a plane, notes and album tugged this heart, anticipating next gang’s chain. copyright , , , , , DEDICATED TO P.D: get well soon and take your daily dose your soup! *notes: with admiration for soup members included herein... all in the name of pure fun! * Gwendolyn Rix, Brian Strand, Sydney Peck, Myself * For Michael Falotico’s Table for Four/ P.D Soup Contest * by nette onclaud

Hi Nette! quite wonderful couplet! delightful flow of repartee! BRAVO!!! oh...thanks for stopping by my work! me & Ma visited our favorite haunts on the north shore of Lake Superior 'bout a month-ago, for a few days.....we grilled steaks on the shore one evening at a spot where her & Pop loved to go....she spooked me a bit when we arrived (but so sweet!) with her exclamation to the forest around us near the shore.....jimbo
