List of Unsold Poems from March 2 Fishbowl

The following poems from the March 2, 2010 Poetry Fishbowl are currently available:

"The Elements of Civilization" -- 10 lines, $5
When I thought about the Empire's list of elements, it picked up some things from [info]moosl's list of photos. So I have "The Elements of Civilization," a non-rhyming poem with 10 syllables per line.

"The Elements of Life" -- 6 lines, $5
a quirky description of a set of 5 elements inspired by some of these photos.

"The Song of the Elements" -- 10 lines, $5 SOLD
a poem written in unrhymed couplets. It names the instruments and their elements, along with a connection between the two.

"Star of the East" -- 10 lines, $5
an invocation of the 5 eastern elements with their qualities.

"Casting the Circle of Words" -- 14 lines, $10 SOLD
which calls the quarters and cross-quarters of speech itself.

"Digging for Roots" -- 18 lines, $10 SOLD
a sort of weave between linguistics and chemistry, incorporating some subtle plays on ideas from those and other scientific fields. It is free verse written in tercets.

"Ella meant..." -- 16 lines, $10 SOLD to Poe Little Thing
a free-verse poem ... detailing the search for undiscovered stable elements.</i>

"Mountains in the Sky, Fires in the Sea" -- 22 lines, $10
 a free verse poem about a planet whose settings and sentients are comfortable with difference.

"The Door in the Sky" -- 33 lines, $15 SOLD
I am pretty sure that this went in a totally different direction than you intended! I saw that reflection in the upper left corner, and it looked to me like a door in the sky, and I was fascinated by how unreal and tenuous seemed the reflection of our world overlain on the forest. So here is a free verse poem, "The Door in the Sky," about the spirit of an Air elemental trapped in our world, until ... a door opens in the sky.

"The Elemental Symbiotes" -- 34 lines, $15 SOLD
a free verse poem about several bizarre plants and animals on the planet of Botannia.

"The Orphaned Elements" -- 30 lines, $15 SOLD
a free verse poem about the elements we have forgotten ... and what they are going to do about that.

"The Elements of Wisdom" -- 47 lines, $20 SOLD
a free verse poem about how the mortals forgot about elementals and nearly destroyed the world. But the elementals had a plan...


"Creativity" is a shape poem.  Join the discussion about how to render it into a marketable form.

"A Periodic Table of Elementals" is an epic in progress.  It will be priced by verse. I have ... two eight lines, so far.  It took me a long time to design the infrastructure before I could write them.  I'm intending to write one verse per scientific element, describing them as elemental spirits. Join the discussion about how to develop it.
