Poetry Fishbowl Report for January 5, 2016

Our theme this month was "Unexpected Uses for Ordinary Things." I worked from noon to 3 AM, so about 13 hours allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 11 poems on Tuesday and 2 later in the week.

Participation was lower, with 26 comments on LiveJournal and another 24 on Dreamwidth. A total of 21 people left prompts, though, which is still pretty good. There were no new prompters this time.

The following poems from the January 5, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
