Poetry Fishbowl Report for June 5, 2012 - The Wordsmith's Forge

Poetry Fishbowl Report for June 5, 2012
The June theme was "precious metals and gems."  A surge of prompts arrived midday, then nothing for a while, followed by a trickle later in the evening.  I worked from 12:15 PM to 2:30 AM, so about 12 hours 15 minutes allowing for breaks.  Most were medium poems, with a few epics, long and short poems.  They were all free verse and all but one based on single prompts.  A total of 17 people sent prompts.
