Last week's Poetry Fishbowl went well. I am still writing. My parents bought their batch so I'll get those poems posted when I can.
Poetry in Microfunding:
There are two open epics at present.
"The Hobbomak" launches the Bear Tunnels series. Emma and Jesse discover an unusual chamber underground.
"A Celebration and a Consolation" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Keira comforts her mother after the breakup.
The weather has been mostly mild and blustery. We got some rain over the last couple of days. I've been doing advance yardwork. I'm picking up sticks and pulling weeds. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a large flock of mourning doves (including courtship behavior), a large flock of grackles, a few robins, several house finches who are draining the thistle sock, a pair of cardinals, a Bewick's wren, a brown thrasher, and a squirrel. I saw the crows harassing the owl again.
