There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, March 2 with a theme of "Alternate History."  I hope to see you all then!

The 2021 Rose and Bay Awards have closed for voting. Most of the winners have been declared and I'm just waiting on the last one before I put together an announcement.

My February goal has been wok study. I will probably continue this, as it has been a very interesting experiment. You can enjoy what I've done as foodpr0n even if you don't use a wok. Here are the relevant posts:

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics at present.

"A Celebration and a Consolation" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Keira's father dumps her mother on Yule.

"The Best Understanding of Their Differences" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Calliope and has 3 new verses. Calliope and Vagary consider the aftermath of the bubble fight.

The weather has been mostly mild here. The snow is all melted and the ground soggy. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a flock of mourning doves, several cardinals, a Bewick's wren, a downy woodpecker, and a squirrel.
