I also launched the 2011 Winterfaire, where you can promote your goods/services that would make suitable holiday gifts or shop for gifts from independent creators. So far, three perk poems have been completed and a fourth is in progress:
Poem: "With Mortal Flesh and Iron Will"
Poem: "Wipeout"
Poem: "Gallery of Souls"
Poem: "All in the Family"

The next Poetry Fishbowl is tomorrow, with a theme of "Chocolate and Other Foods."  Please drop by and leave me some prompts!

Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Inescapable Agony of Being" is a $20 poem about aliens masquerading as human.

Weather here is still chilly and intermittently damp.  The cardinals and mourning doves are more enthusiastic about the birdfeeders now.  One day I saw a flock of two dozen doves around the fly-through feeder.  They are easier to count because sometimes they sit still.
