To The Ingredients That Makes- For A Tasty Soup

Blog Posted:1/2/2022 8:20:00 PM

To all "you" ingredients that make this "Soup" such a tasty dish, Please except my apologies for not being so active throughout this years end. I was feeling a bit under the weather with the flu and over past few days I kind of lost my PS mojo. Getting back into the groove, I want to thank everyone who has over the past year, read my poems, entered my contests, commented on my writes...and most importantly contributed your wonderful poetry here on PoetrySoup. It's be a joy to get to know such a fine assortment of spices that makes for good eats "sort of speak"  Also, thank you and Congratulations to PS administration for their hard work in putting together  Anthology-2 "It's Still Poetry"  I Can't wait to get my hands on it and read all the poems that have been selected for it. Congratulations to all of you that had your poems selected. Thank you to all the sponsores for sponsoring contests, all the special poets/poetesses that spend so much time commenting on so many poets poems. Thank you to all the poets that have been here for a few years or more...for supporting all the new-comer's that try to make their marks and add their own spices to the pot. From the bottom of my heart...I thank you all.    "Happy New Year "   All the best, Charles (AKA) Charlie (AKA) Charlieku :)

Glad you are feeling better! Tasty soup -- some are the meat, some are mild veggies, others are onions and garlic, some are just water, a few are oil, and occasionally there are others who are spices. All should be welcomed else we end up with a bland soup.
