Good News

Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more?

Poem: "Always Ready to Receive"

This poem is spillover from the November 7, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] bairnsidhe.

This poem has been sponsored by the pool with [personal profile] ng_moonmoth and [personal profile] mama_kestrel. It belongs to the Calliope thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some touchy topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It includes an emergency call, a baby with Chameleon Skin surrendered at a safe haven, past zetetic terrorism, personal eugenics FAIL, some people really should not be parents, Family Services refusing to accept a superbaby, Calliope asked to help find a placement for him, calling on Dolorita and Alberto Rojas, reference to infertility, paperwork from different organizations, and other challenges. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
