Unsold Poems from the January 6, 2015 Poetry Fishbowl

The following poems from the January 6, 2015 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.

There are still verses left in the linkback poem "Silken Dreams."  Linking to this page will reveal new verses of that.

"Awaiting the Call"
From this I got the free-verse poem "Awaiting the Call." It speaks of different heroes and how the time before the journey prepares them for what is to come.
32 lines, Buy It Now = $15

"A Faithful Friend and a Good Library"
Your request for Eric inspired the free-verse poem "A Faithful Friend and a Good Library." Eric and TeJay plant a butterfly garden, get Eric a library card, and find some fun new ways to spend time together.
162 lines, Buy It Now = $81

Eric scraped his shovel along the deep bed
that would soon become a butterfly garden.
They'd had to loosen the soil with pickaxes
before they could start digging it out.

He was bored half to death,
and the job was nowhere near done.
"Hey TeJay, who's your best friend?"

"A Precious Princess of Pulleys and Gears"
Your building prompt inspired the free-verse poem "A Precious Princess of Pulleys and Gears." Herr Drosselmeyer's nephew has brought forth an impressive automaton.
58 lines, Buy It Now = $58

Herr Drosselmeyer's nephew
came to London on business, but
brought with him a private pleasure.

The automaton clearly drew inspiration
from his uncle's model, yet showed
far more grace and precision,
her construction a work of art
as much as practicality.
