Poetry Fishbowl Report for May 5, 2015

Our theme this month was "gentlemen in distress." I worked from 12:30 PM to to 4:30 AM, so about 14 hours accounting for breaks. I wrote 9 poems on Tuesday and another 19 later.

There was good participation, with 49 comments on LiveJournal and 43 on Dreamwidth. A total of 22 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompters [personal profile] liliane and LJ user Starcat_jewel. You have them to thank for the second freebie.
