Poem: "Lemon-Lime"

This is the freebie for the September Creative Jam. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] alexseanchai. It also fills the "lemon" square in my 9-5-18 card for the 1000 Words or Less Bingo fest.


The lemon is yellow,
the lime is green.

They are the light
and the darkness.

They grow apart,
yet they go together.

The light and the darkness
are not enemies but complements.

Taste the lemon-lime awakening and see
that binary thinking is bullshit.


Poem: "The Price of Freedom"

This poem came out of the August 7, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] chanter_greenie. It also fills the "blood" square in my 6-4-18 Dark Fantasy card for the Winteriron Bingo Adventure fest. Based on an audience poll, this is the free epic for the September 4, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.

Note: This poem contains reference to a past injury from a bicycle mishap.  Despite copious amounts of blood, nobody was seriously hurt.

Today's Adventures

We went up to the farmer's market this morning.  The main goal was to buy ingredients for making a big batch of spaghetti sauce tomorrow, which we did.  Mostly heirloom tomatoes of assorted styles.  One vendor had pawpaws, but alas, they were pathetically small and green so I didn't buy any.  We did find someone with carnival squash, which we love, and got one of those.  And there were ginger gold apples!  :D 3q3q3q!!!  I haven't had any of those in several years, so I bought enough to make a pie.  <3
