The Poetry Fishbowl went pretty well. I got some shorter stuff this time, and I'm still wading through the long plotty prompts.

The Year-End Sale will run Monday, December 17-Friday, December 21. That covers everything from December 2017-November 2018. Budget accordingly. You can buy poetry for someone as a gift, anonymously or openly.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are three open epics.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask . Pain's Gray gives Keane what he needs.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie goes to Pretty Ears for counseling.

"The Tree of Damocles" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv and is part of the Christmas thread.  When Shiv shies away from the Christmas tree, Tolli and Simon get creative.

The weather has been variable here.  We have a sprinkle of snow on the ground.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of sparrows, a few mourning doves, some dark-eyed juncos, several house finches, several cardinals, and a goldfinch. I also saw a hawk flying around the yard! \o/

Poem: "The Heart to Rejoice"

This poem came out of the December 4, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from Hikaru. It also fills the "visiting family" square in my 12-1-18 card for the Summer in December fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.  The sequel is "A Perfection That Eludes Us," which can now be posted whenever it get sponsored.

Warning: This poem contains some intense and controversial topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It includes interdimensional travel, threatened kidnapping and child harm disguised as "destiny," radically different cultural values, references to dire situations elsewhere, arguing, and other angst. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
