Lets see fellow Souprs, I guess in this Bio, I’m suppose to  talk about myself,
To allow you to get to know me better as a writer and a person. So lets see
I grew up next to the Lake Erie basin, near large farms, and wild wooded area’s.
My mother could barely read or write, but my father was well educated. My father
Always said I had a hunger to learn, and it was never satisfied. I agree with him
I started to read at an early age, started to write poetry in forth grade it’s always
Been my passion.  As a child I’d either be exploring nature, or swimming, pretty
Much a tomboy, but when I was home I’d be curled up with a book or two. My 
Grandmother was a painter, and artist, my father before he got frost bite was
A consort pianist, so I give these two credit for where I get any talent from.
I love history, and love to learn about everything and anything! I have five 
Children two girls and three boys. Also by the way I have eight grandchildren.
I started raising children when I was 11 years old, my brother's son Billy, who
Is handycable. I am really proud of him also, I adopted one child named Jaried
Who is quite a writer in his own write, my street poet. Patrick my youngest
Whom just turned 18, is a butting artist. My daughters Ashley and Amanda,
Who keep me young and active. I love to be by the water, but have never
Seen the ocean, this is on my bucket list. But even though I have been published.
In small forums, my goal for this year is to get my first real book published.
Edger Allen Poe, Frost and Browning , are some of my favorite writers. I’ve been
Married for 25 years, and am a still on my honeymoon. I work in the human relations
Field, and security.
Well I think that does it I hope you find this interesting, I'm not for writing about myself. But I'm glad that I joined the soup, and enjoy meeting people whom share
My interest in poetry.Take care and enjoy every moment in life to it's fullest.

Not only is leaving comments on other poets poems a great way to be reciprocated, one will also learn more about forms, even grammar whilst commenting and learning from others. When I joined the Soup away back in 2009 I knew nothing about poetry. With the help of some really nice people and a variance of wonderful poets, I learned more than I could have imagined. <*> Everyday's a school day Cheryl, and the teachers here are well worth learning from <*> have a lovely Sunday :)

I've read and commented on four..seeing a love of the sea in each. Do you write on your phone?? I was wondering because the lines are all about the same length and some lines are one word that could be included in another. You've been given good advice. Be sure to reciprocate...if you want. Less is more, less is more !! lol

we've had this coversation before, if you comment on other writers they will likely comment on you, so sit yourself down, read 20 or so poems, say something and probably half those people will read something of yours and do the same
