This week's Creative Jam went well. You can read about what I wrote, and the poem somebody else wrote for me.

The poll is currently open for you to vote on favorite themes for the Poetry Fishbowls later this year.

There will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, July 19 with a theme of "anything goes."  Mark your calendar so you can give me prompts!
