Last week's Poetry Fishbowl went pretty well, lots of prompts came in. Some folks expressed interest in buying poems for which the payment has not yet arrived, so if that was you, please take care of that.  Check the feed for what's already sponsored, though, because I've posted several.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics.

"Everyone Can Dance" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Shiv realizes a possible catch in the plan.

"What Survives the Whole Process" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Fortressa. Penny has finalized the design of her new cargo pants.

The weather has been mild and mostly dry here, but we got a tiny sprinkle of rain yesterday.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a small flock of mourning doves, several house finches, several sparrows, and a pair of cardinals. Currently blooming: violas, petunias, pinks, marigolds, lantana, torenia, million bells, moss rose, firecracker plant, salvia, nasturtiums, gaillardia, clover, morning glories, butterfly weed, blackberry lilies, cup plant, yellow coneflower, gladioli, red yarrow, coreopsis, Queen Anne's lace, thistle, naked lady lilies, and a bunch of other things. Crabapples and apples have green fruit.


Magpie Monday

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting Magpie Monday today, with a theme of "healing hidden scars."  Leave prompts, get ficlets!

If I reach $65 in tips before the opening of the “Feathering the Nest” prompt call, I’ll immediately post “Factory and Art,” which tells the story of Shiv’s field trip to see Microfyne blankets being produced, and runs right around seven thousand words. That’s effectively doubling the reading for everyone to enjoy!
