The Poetry Fishbowl went pretty well. I got some shorter stuff this time, and I'm still wading through the long plotty prompts.

The Year-End Sale will run Monday, December 17-Friday, December 21. That covers everything from December 2017-November 2018. Budget accordingly. You can buy poetry for someone as a gift, anonymously or openly.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are three open epics.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask . Pain's Gray gives Keane what he needs.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie goes to Pretty Ears for counseling.

"The Tree of Damocles" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv and is part of the Christmas thread.  When Shiv shies away from the Christmas tree, Tolli and Simon get creative.

The weather has been variable here.  We have a sprinkle of snow on the ground.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of sparrows, a few mourning doves, some dark-eyed juncos, several house finches, several cardinals, and a goldfinch. I also saw a hawk flying around the yard! \o/
