This poem came out of the January 22, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from kelkyag. It also fills the "deals" square on my Dark Fantasy Bingo Card. It has been sponsored out of the general fund. This poem belongs to the series Fiorenza the Wisewoman. You can read more about the villanelle form online.

The length ran long, just over half epics, with several long poems and one medium-short. Most were free verse, with a single villanelle. Most combined multiple prompts. I also filled a few squares on my Dark Fantasy Bingo Card.
Activity was low, as it often is in the mid-month fishbowls. There were 30 comments on LiveJournal and another 7 on Dreamwidth. A total of 13 people sent prompts. There were no new prompters or donors, though.
