Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, August 20

The bonus theme was One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis.  I worked from 12:30 PM to 12:45 AM, so about 10 hours 15 minutes, allowing for lunch and supper breaks.  Prompts trickled in slowly and participation was low -- only 8 people on LJ and none on DW -- but most of the poems were epics so I got a decent wordcount.  There were 8 poems total, all free verse.  Please welcome new prompter elisem.

The following poems from the February 2013 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
"Bottled Sun"
"Crystal Wings"
"The Distillation of Senses"
