What Hump?

Tommyboy, Tormented Clown, Seeker, White Knight and now July Morning.  I've been around the block and back again.  How long this time?  Who knows.  Social media is a bit of a bugger, isn't it?  Like so many things there is good and bad.  But I love to write so here I am.  Again.  But this blog isn't really about me.  I want to give greater exposure to a few poets who absolutely deserve more attention.

1.  John Fleming.  I don't think I've read anyone on PS with such a command of the English language.  My fave poet here.

2. Leanne Lovejoy-Burton.  Her metaphors, contemporary and historical references make for some interesting poetry.  And don't forget to check out her short stories too.

3.  Dale Gregory Cozart.  A poet's poet.  He knows his stuff.  I've been astounded by his mastery of language.  Wish I had half his talent.

4.  Greg Barden.  Frequently at or near the top of the best new poems list, many of you already know his excellent writings.  For those who hav yet to visit, you won't be disappointed.

I could go on but many of you are already reading Silent One, Becca, Nette etal, with pleasure.  

Nice to be back.  For now (hehe).


Tommyboy, er, July

Wow....Multiple personalities.....I knew you best as Seeker. You always encouraged me and then you disappeared. Glad you have returned, Tom.....stay awhile won’t you? You should be on that shortlist too. SuZ

I think I did my best work as seeker (sigh). Thanks suze

Very nice to know you, Tom, and thank you so much for the nod of approval ... I'm honored to be on a list with such prolific and integral poets, and blessed in so many ways, friendship especially, in my time at The Soup! Been writing seriously for a little over a year, for fun a few months longer, and continually trying to improve my craft. There are many here who have set a standard that I aspire to daily, (including all on your list, and a man no longer here named Terry O'Leary - wow!), and so many more - I'd name them all but I don't want to leave anyone out - anyone who's been here any length of time will know their wonderful work! I am so blessed to have found this refuge, & all of you!

lol Yes she's really good. This is why I don't do blogs that try to name "the good ones" because I know I'd fail to mention many who are deserving.

Tommy, I agree with Keith about the eyes, you need to go get checked for possible Graves' Disease.
