The half-price poetry sale is running this week in The Steamsmith series. Drop by to shop for bargain poetry.
During the week of October 22-28, I will be serving as Poetry Host over in the Dreamwidth community Poetree. The theme will be serial poetry. Watch for discussions and poems to appear. Those of you who enjoy my serial poetry are especially encouraged to come talk about why you follow it and what appeals to you, along with thoughts on any other serial poetry you may have found.

Weather here has been cool and intermittently rainy. I filled the birdfeeders this week, with mixed seed and suet. So far I've seen a bluejay and a lady cardinal in the vicinity.
