The half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics went well last week. I still have several poems to post.
Poetry in Microfunding:
There are two open epics at present.
"Rainshadow Road" belongs the Daughters of the Apocalypse series. It introduces Maggot to the Clearwater Caravan.
"The Hobbomak" is now complete. Emma and Jesse finish explorations and think about what to do next.
"A Celebration and a Consolation" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Keira comforts her mother after the breakup.
The weather has been warm, and we got some rain one night. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a small flock of mourning doves, a small flock of house finches, several grackles, a female cardinal, a rabbit, and a squirrel. Currently blooming: white penstemon, orange butterflyweed, Asiatic lilies, orange daylilies, Here-Lies-Butch daylily, violas, hostas, hollyhock, spiderwort, and a couple of white things in the wildflower garden. Blackberries have green fruit. Black raspberries and mulberries are ripe. Serviceberries and pie cherries are almost done.
