The following poems from the April 16, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl are currently available. Poems may be sponsored via PayPal -- there's a permanent donation button on my LiveJournal profile page -- or you can write to me and discuss other methods.

"Dog Tired" -- 161 lines, $80.50 SOLD
From a prompt about fearless dogs, I got the free-verse poem "Dog Tired" about Einar and a pair of mastiffs. Committing arson around a smith-paladin, really not a bright idea.

"Enlighten the Dark Corners" -- 219 lines, $109.50 SOLD
Rejoin Radd in the free-verse poem "Enlighten the Dark Corners." A weary traveler collapses in the road outside his church.

"The Epicurean Caravan" -- 88 lines, $44 SOLD
I loved the prompt about spices. "The Epicurean Caravan" is a free-verse poem about Shahana and Ari guarding a shipment of spices as they travel. It made a nice backstory for "Divergent Paths."

"Landfather" -- SOLD
From a prompt about Ari's village, I got the free-verse poem "Landfather." Johan, Althey, and company arrive at the village in time to provide a very useful service.

"Manifest Concern" -- 20 lines, $10 SOLD
From your prompt about deities walking among mortals, I got the poem "Manifest Concern," written in unrhymed quatrains. Gods and Goddesses have appeared to various people, but it's been a long time since Gailah has.

"Scourge" -- 82 lines, $41 SOLD
From the prompt about a rogue paladin, I got the free-verse poem "Scourge," which introduces someone with a strange mix of allegiances.

"Two Good Hands" -- 163 lines, $81.50 SOLD
The prompt about a disabled paladin led to the free-verse poem "Two Good Hands." Shahana takes Ari to meet an old friend who keeps a forest shrine to Diawn of the plants.
