Poetry Fishbowl Report for March 20, 2012

The theme for this bonus fishbowl was Path of the Paladins.  Prompts were slow coming in at first.  A total of 9 people sent prompts.  There were 32 comments, including mine.  I worked from 2 PM to 3:15 AM, so about 11 hours 15 minutes allowing for lunch and supper breaks.  I wrote 8 poems, all free verse, and all but one epics.  Most of them combined multiple prompts.

There was one new prompter, catsittingstill.  You have her to thank for the extra freebie.  Donations were good for a mid-month fishbowl, which led to a lot of these poems getting published.  Yay! 

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the March 20, 2012 fishbowl have been posted:
"Ari and the Atheist"
"Bouquets of Bygone Days"
"Follow Your Heart"
"Frightening the Horses"
"Storm Wrack"

See also the lyrics "A Matter of the Heart" by catsittingstill, inspired by "Follow Your Heart."  A tune has been crowdfunded and will be recorded eventually.  Yay!  Yay!

Buy Some Poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, read the list of unsold poems from March 20, 2012.  That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

All currently sponsored poems are posted.  I've sent backchannel copies to the prompters for the rest.  Donors for this fishbowl include:  morrigans_eve, catsittingstill, the_vulture, janetmiles, and tabard.  Thank you all for your support and enthusiasm!
