I have posted a call for themes, so make sure you chime in there regarding what you'd like to see in upcoming Poetry Fishbowls.
Magpie Monday is now open with a theme of "New Experiences."
Poetry in Microfunding:
There are now four open epics. I expect to have more as I finish writing some of the bingo fills, so other than those, we're full for now.
"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Now Shiv flibbers over being unable to earn ALL the pretty colors at once.
"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask and has 44 new verses. In which a supervillain and a cop argue over donuts.
"Mask of the White Demon" belongs to Kande's Quest. Kande finds a shaman to help her pursue the demons who kidnapped her brother.
"A Certain Form of Humility" belongs to Path of the Paladins. Johan and Althey fall into a gully.
The weather has been variable here. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, several cardinals, flocks of of house finches, and a squirrel. In bloom: marigolds, gazania, blue lobelia, white alyssum, zinnias, torenia, salvia, cleome, petunia, million bells, snapdragons, lantana, coreopsis, dianthus, peppers, basil, daylilies, begonia, morning glory, and sundry others. Crabapples, apples, and blackberries have green fruit. Mulberries are ripe.
