These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:
Poem: Synaesthesia Feast
Crowdfunding Creative Jam
Read "A Purple Monster"

The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, June 5 with a theme of "Precious Metals & Gems."  I am still looking for someone to post the linkback poem.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Uneasy Things" belongs to the series Path of the Paladins.  See what Johan finds at Einar's booth.  "This Beaten Drum" is another Paladins poem.  Shahana and Ari discover a battlefield where they must lay the ghosts to rest.

It's been warmer here, and dry.  I've gotten a little more yardwork done in terms of picking up sticks and raking so that places can be mowed.  The fireflies are coming out in the evenings.  Usually we don't see them until June but things are still running a couple weeks early.
