I am working on the year-end perks for my K-fans. Here are the poetry series currently available as collections. Arts and Crafts America, The Moon Door, Clay of Life, A Conflagration of Dragons, Hart's Farm, One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis and P.I.E. are new this year! I have finished collating the first half of the 2019 collection of fishbowl poems, and the second half is being compiled.
Poetry in Microfunding:
There are two open epics at present.
"Celebrate and Cherish" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Mallory. Mallory and family begin exploring the Circle School with a teacher.
"Into the Thousand-Eyed Present" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Aquariana and Gentle Soul. Aidan, Saraphina, Drew, and Zipper apply for Maldivian citizenship.
The weather has been mild here. There are still a few puddles and ice patches around. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a flock of mourning doves, several cardinals, several dark-eyed juncos, a downy woodpecker, and a squirrel. I saw the great horned owl this week too.
