Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, March 10
Tuesday's poetry fishbowl was a lively one. I got a bunch of prompts early on, and a few more later. I started at 11:30 AM, and stopped working at 8:30 PM when a storm blew in; when I came back there were no new prompts so I just declared the session closed. So that's about 7 hours accounting for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 16 poems, all short or medium; nothing over $15 this month. Some were based on single prompts, but others combined several. Only one was a rhymed, metered form but several were structured free verse. 15 people sent prompts, a nice strong showing, and there were 41 comments including mine.

[EDIT 4/22/09 adding poems]

These are the fishbowl poems that have already been published:
"The Absent-Bodied Professor"
"Family Curses"
"The Ghosts of Alexandria"
"The Hands That Hold the World"
"Socked Away"
"The Things Between"
"Vandervecken's Fleet"

A discussion is going about "The Ghosts of Alexandria," particularly the last verse and whether it should be either expanded or deleted.

This month's donors are: ellenmillion, dakiwiboid, dulcinbradbury, janetmiles, minor_architect, and ladyqkat. Later there will be a donor perk post, and polling to determine the generally sponsored poems to be posted. Thanks to everyone for your support and enthusiasm.
