There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, May 1 with a theme of "neurodiversity." Make a note on your calendars, starting thinking of prompts, and I hope to see you then!

Poetry in Microfunding:

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Dr. G thinks of a way to make it worth Shiv's effort to answer some introductory therapy questions. Shiv is warily intrigued.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask. Damask and Farce find out what's up with the Scream.

The weather has been mild here, intermittently sunny and gray. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a flock of mourning doves, several cardinals, some dark-eyed juncoes, some brown-headed cowbirds, several blackbirds, a starling, a blue jay, a downy woodpecker, and a rabbit.  Robins, red-winged blackbirds, and brown thrashers have been out combing the grass for insects.  I also saw a blue-gray gnatcatcher in the savanna.  In bloom: daffodils, scilla, white hyacinths, violets, blue grape hyacinths, forsythia, pear, gold currant, blue windflowers, and sundry others.  Lilacs, cherries, and honeysuckle have buds.  I bought a lot of native plants recently and have been planting those.
