My First Published Poem!

Blog Posted:6/17/2022 8:38:00 AM

Hello my Poetry Soup family, I am happy to announce my first published poem! It is titled 'Unstable' (alternate title Unstable Skies') and you can find it online at both Literary Yard and a site called Winamop. They are both online as of today. This would not have been possible without the support of this site so I wanted to say thank you to all who reach other to encourage each other, I have learned so much from this site and been so inspired by all the talented poets I have had the honor to read (better stop now as it's starting to sound like an acceptance speech!)

Hi, Michelle! I was able to read your integral poem about its subject matter at both sites, (my first time at these websites). I concluded with a direct request to rate your poem at the latter site, whereto, I gave it an all 5 mops. I invite other soupers to do the same. Aloha~William
