Poetry Fishbowl Report for August 6, 2013
Our topic this month was "nomads."  I worked from noon to 3:15 AM on Tuesday, so about 13 hours 15 minutes allowing for breaks.  I wrote 17 poems on Tuesday and 3 more later in the week.  I got a good spread of poems covering all the length categories.

There was lively participation.  A total of 23 people sent prompts.  Please welcome new prompters labelleizzy, Dreamwidth users Timescaper and Redsixwing.  You have them to thank for the second freebie.
