Poll: Select Poetry Themes for Early 2017

I have winnowed the themes from the previous poll, dropping out those with 0-3 votes.  This reduced the cumbersome 45 topics to a much more manageable 25.  \o/  Now you get to pick your favorites.

Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I will keep it open until at least Monday night.  If the answers are clear then, I'll close it.  If not, I may leave it open a while longer.  I'll use the votes to help decide which themes to use in the fishbowls for early 2017.  Bear in mind that some of the supporters are not on LiveJournal, so not all votes may be visible.

PLEASE READ THE RULES BEFORE VOTING!


This poll uses checkboxes instead of radio buttons, allowing people to vote for more than one option.  (Due to LJ poll parameters, I had to divide the 25 themes over two questions in the poll; just pretend they are all in one place and spread your total votes across the two questions however you wish.)  If the poll function doesn't work for you, just leave your vote in a comment or contact me privately.  Votes are distributed based on your participation in the Poetry Fishbowl project.

Anyone may vote for ONE theme.
If you have EITHER prompted or donated during 2016, you may vote for TWO themes.
If you have BOTH prompted and donated during 2016, you may vote for THREE themes.
If you have written something for one of my settings during 2016, you get ONE extra vote.
If you have helped with my website or other recordkeeping during 2016, you get ONE extra vote.

(If you have not yet donated, but want the extra vote, drop me a small donation now and that will count.  There's a permanent PayPal button on my LiveJournal profile.)
