Poem: "The Most Room in Your Heart"

This poem is spillover from the December 5, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] technoshaman, [personal profile] alexseanchai, and [personal profile] janetmiles. It also fills the "guardian angel" square of my 12-3-17 card for the [community profile] genprompt_bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] technoshaman. It belongs to the Damask thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Thanks to a donation from [personal profile] mama_kestrel , there are 14 new verses in "The Higher a Monkey Climbs."  See the confrontation with the fire chief.

By the way, this one is now only $52 from completion.  Its sequel "For Any Creative Assignment" will be in the Holiday Poetry Sale, in which Joshua meets Pips.

Today's Adventures

We went up to see my parents today. 

On the way up, we stopped at Harvest Market for a few things.  They had samples out.  One of these days, we'll remember not to eat lunch before going there on Saturday.  Among the offerings was a ham from Triple S Farms. I didn't know they did more than turkey.  The ham was delicious.  We splurged on one.  Expensive, but did I mention delicious? quite large, and supposedly made without nitrates.  I am dubious of this since all the substitutes I've read about are, in fact, still nitrates and being organic does not make them any less dangerous.  But whatever, it is delicious ham and in the freezer for future use.  :D 

We presented the gifts to Mom and Dad.  They always love their copies of my Llewellyn annuals.  Plus the suede lanyard that Doug made, and the art prints that I got from a museum in Louisville this summer.  \o/  Yay holidays!

Since they're elsewise occupied for the holidays, I also presented them with poetry for the Holiday Poetry Sale, which means I should have stuff to post early in the week.  I am currently collating the poems for the sale so that I can post that on Monday.

After that, we went out to eat at Fujiyama.  It was crowded ... on the grill side ... and we eat in the regular restaurant.  Another haggis shortage averted!  Also the lobster roll is quite good.

I finished holiday shopping for Doug, just need to wrap his stuff. I forgot about the things I picked up from Enchantment Alley.  And it looks like we may actually have several guests for Yule, which would be neat.
