SOUPSVILLE

(Dedication: For the poets at PoetrySoup) "Be of good cheer in spite of fear; Love lives right here to help you steer." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here on this site, each soul can cite In easy writes, lines in small bites. Here each poet hurls his or her fare In inner swirl what feelings bare. Here in sure stride, verses spill out In a flood tide of voice that routes. Here with fond feel, each wears a style Of zest that heals as words move miles. Here in this space where all zones meet, Each touch can trace the face that greets. Here common sense can bridge the gap Of warring tense to craft new maps. Here each to each, we come and go, Writes within reach, seek a fond show. Here despite flaws, each man can be Writer most raw or what you see. Here thoughts take form to create verse To share a norm as you observe. Here you can share your living lines Of pain and cares and love that binds. Here in Soupsville, each man can be: Craft with goodwill for all to see. Here's to the best that each can share, In simple quest to tend life's cares. Here's to good times and bad days too, For reason rhymes as feelings woo. Here's to your writes that echo far, Comments on-site that blaze like stars! Here's to each day to fling finesse, To feel wordplay in spite of stress. Here's to all forms of words that sum, That moves our norms in sure outcomes. Here's to the poise in simple voice, To verse craft choice as we rejoice. Here's to each write that no one sees: Discern and cite, keep faith truly. Leon Enriquez 18 August 2014 Singapore
