Poetry Fishbowl Report for December 6, 2016

This month's theme was "All the news is dark, so light a candle."  I worked from 1:15 PM to 5:15 AM, so about 14 hours allowing for lunch and supper breaks.  I wrote 9 poems on Tuesday and another 10 later in the week.

Participation was lively, with 26 comments on LiveJournal and another 55 on Dreamwidth.  There were no new prompters.
