The half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics almost sold out. One epic is in microfunding and there's money in the general fund that will reveal more verses of that. NOT everything is posted yet, so keep an eye on this over the next few days as I work through my backlog of sponsored stuff to post.
Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Inheritor of Our Fear" belongs to the Damask thread of the Polychrome Heroics series. Mallory deals with a disapproving stranger. (There will be more verses appearing when I have time to post them from the general fund. Also the immediate sequel to this poem, "The Right and the Responsibility," has been sponsored and will be posted when this one is all up.)

Weather here has been warmish and intermittently rainy. Daffodils, jonquils, forsythia, wild violets, gold currants, serviceberries, lilacs, redbuds, cherries, crabapples, apples, and pear are blooming. I got a bunch of oak seedlings (white, red, pin, bur) and wildflowers that need to be planted.
