Sunday Yardening

Today is cloudy and cool.  I collected seeds from the blackberry lily and a yellow wildflower, then planted those in the prairie garden. I collected seeds from the purple morning glory to save for spring planting.

I saw the bluejay again today, and a house finch.  The birds are more interested in the feeders as the weather cools. 

Poem: "Indispensable to Each Other"

This poem came out of the May 15, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] daisiesrockalot, [personal profile] ari_the_dodecahedron, and LJ user My_partner_doug. It also fills the "Police Officer" square in my 5-1-18 Roles card for the Pro Wrestling Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Calliope and Officer Pink threads of the Polychrome Heroics series. This poem spans several days; Presidents' Day is on Monday, February 16, 2015 and Mixed-Cape Emergency Response runs February 14-16, 2015.

Warning: This poem contains some touchy topics and controversial issues. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It features ongoing bond issues between Calliope and Vagary, trustbuilding activities, rude language, trust issues, cape issues, personal strengths and weaknesses, forgiving and unforgiving, small servings of food are hard on soups, maniacal laughter, discomfort with trustbuilding exercises, because demi* people can be slow to warm up, someone getting pulled out the room for inappropriate behavior, superpower acceptance and rejection, Boris the Brawn is a badass in his wheelchair, puckish behavior, and other challenges. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
