Poem: "A Periodic Table of Elementals"

This poem began during the March 2, 2010 Poetry Fishbowl.  It presents the scientific elements as elemental spirits.  You can read more in the original description.  "A Periodic Table of Elementals" is being microfunded one verse at a time.  Verses will be priced individually to account for varying line length and difficulty.

A Day Out

Today we're going out shopping and rambling. I'm planning to take the camera outside for a few snapshots of my flowers and gardens, and maybe we'll find something else worth shooting later today as well. I'll be away from the computer for much of the day.

"A Periodic Table of Elementals" has been updated, thanks to sponsors zianuray and jenny_evergreen who join xjenavivex in supporting this epic poem in progress.

I don't have all the Muse Fusion materials submitted to Torn World yet. All the stories have made it past my first-reader, though, three of them with no comments and one that just had pronoun trouble in a couple of places. (Doug says that I'm consistently performing better with these short-short stories than with longer stories.) So far, "A Monster Story" and "The Bird Festival" have been submitted. I still need to get the other two stories and the last poem submitted.

Also, news from last night: the spring digging has begun. natasiakith and I went outside and grubbed up at least a dozen black raspberry canes that were growing where they didn't belong. Those now have a new home with her.
