Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Yesterday's fishbowl was on the slow side; not so many people participated or donated. I started at noon and closed at 9:30 PM since no more prompts had arrived for several hours, so that's about 7 1/2 hours accounting for breaks. I wrote 13 poems, mostly medium and a few long. Two were quaterns, a form I find myself liking. There were 32 comments including mine; 8 people sent prompts.

[EDIT 4/22/09 adding poems]

Several of the fishbowl poems have already been posted:
"The Architects of Love"
"Frontal Exposure"
"The Key to My Heart Is Upside Down"
"Like the Dew on the Leaves"
"Silicon Skin and Carbon Hearts"
"Stronger Than Concrete"

"Like the Dew on the Leaves" happens to be one of the quaterns, a form that works well as lyrical poetry, and indeed a discussion has arisen about its suitability for performance. If somebody wants to set it to music and sing it, that would be lovely.

This month's donors are: jenny_evergreen, minor_architect, laturner, and janetmiles. There will be a poll shortly to determine the poem from the general sponsorship. Thank you all for your support.

EDITED 2-21-09 to add donors and poems.
