The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, October 4 with a theme of "monsters." I hope to see you then!
Poetry in Microfunding:
"Holding Hope and Love" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Cheersquad gives Zima some ideas for helping Lakia. "A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Aidan and Saraphina wrap up in the Wood Room. "Bearers of Witness with Justice" is now complete. See the Japanese whalers get what they've got coming! This means there's an open slot for the Tuesday fishbowl, in case anyone wants to launch a new epic.

The weather has been has been cooler, and we got several days of rain. Today was lovely. Currently blooming: petunias, marigolds, million bells, morning glories, chicory, frost asters, goldenrod. Something tiny and purple in the wildflower garden that might be another aster. Hazelnuts have green fruit. Some of the crabapples are ripe now. Black walnuts are dropping green balls everywhere, and the ones on the ground are turning brown. I keep seeing squirrels running around to bury them. Some leaves are starting to fall. Farmers are harvesting corn and soybeans in the fields.
