Emotional Intimacy Question: Your Life Story
The Poetry Fishbowl went well last week. Lots of prompts and comments! :D
Poetry in Microfunding:
"Marks of Devotion" belongs to Kande's Quest. Kande ventures into the underworld in search of her brother.
"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 warm here, intermittently sunny and gray, but no rain. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of sparrows, a flock of mourning doves, several cardinals, some brown-headed cowbirds, several blackbirds, and a rabbit. Robins, red-winged blackbirds, and brown thrashers have been out combing the grass for insects. The first monarch butterflies have arrived, too. Daffodils, crabapples, and cherries are fading. In bloom: violets, blue grape hyacinths, gold currant, late black tulips, lilacs, honeysuckles, jack-in-the-pulpit, and sundry others. Budding: alliums, raspberries, white spirea. I have finished planting the native plants from Earth Day. I still have several things to plant from the Michigan Bulb Company box.
