Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, June 5

This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, June 5, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "precious metals and gems." I'll be soliciting ideas for miners, artisans, people who wear or use fine artifacts, jewelry, money, cursed treasures, technological devices such as lasers or computer chips that incorporate expensive materials, fabrications and fakes, other artifacts, gold rushes and wars, claim jumping, gold digging, jewel heists, conflicts driven by a desire for precious things, mines, mansions, jewelry stores, smithies, museums, lost tombs, pirate islands, social issues, and poetic forms in particular. 

If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week.  (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts.)  Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog. 

I still need a volunteer to host the linkback perk poem. Special thanks to dreamwriteremmy for volunteering to host the linkback perk poem.
