"Tea and Toast" cupcake by abbietabbie.
It’s time to raise our cupcakes and offer a special TOAST to all 21 wonderfully talented, brilliant, wild and wooly poets who participated in the first alphabet soup Poetry Potluck!
You brought us family stories, observations of the natural world, so much fun, wit and whimsy, color, spice, sweetness, snow, snark and soup! You took us to Mexico, Brazil, France, and Mansfield, Missouri. We listened, learned from, and loved what you so generously shared. We noshed, sipped, slurped, licked and crunched. We even tasted gingerbread with chocolate frosting dropped from an airplane! As we wipe the last delicious crumbs from our faces, I salute you and bow to you. Thank you, poets, for the beauty and understanding you bring to the world with your lovingly chosen words!
