Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, June 9
Tuesday's fishbowl started off with a spurt of prompts, followed by a gap and then several more prompts later in the evening, which I enjoyed. I started at noon and worked until 11:30 PM, for a total of 9 1/2 hours allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote a total of 17 poems, mostly medium this time, plus one short and one epic. There was nothing rhymed or metered, and only one form poem, an acrostic. I did write several poems that used quatrains, couplets, or other regular stanzas. Most of the poems came from a single prompt, although a few combined prompts. This batch of poems also leaned strongly toward the humorous and whimsical, a nice change of pace from deep thought and controversy.

This month, 15 people sent prompts. There was one first-time prompter: welcome, madshutterbug. There were 44 comments including mine.

The following fishbowl poems have already been posted:
EDIT 6/24/09, 7/4/09: Added poem.

"Cats Who Fear No Evil"
"Everything I Need to Know, I Learned in the Kitchen"
"False Wishes Come True"
"In the Garden of Ouroboros"
"the moments that fill the soul"
"Speak Down the Centuries"
"Time's Keeper"
"Washing at the Window"
"The Witch and the Frizzled Hen"

miintikwa is seeking cosponsors for "the moments that fill the soul," which needs $5 more to be fully funded. This poem has now been sponsored and posted.

This month's donors include: ellenmillion, talix18, miintikwa, minor_architect, jenny_evergreen, and janetmiles. Special thanks to first-time donor miintikwa. Thus far there are no general donations, so no poetry poll unless something lands in the general fund later. I will get the donor perk-post up as soon as possible.

I loved In the Garden of Ouroboros. Didn't get a chance to type that when I read it, but I like to give you feedback. :)
