The call for themes is now CLOSED.  Thank you for your enthusiasm.

I've reached the end of scheduled themes for the Poetry Fishbowl project.  It's time to brainstorm some new themes!  These are a few that I've jotted down earlier, ones that I've thought up or people have suggested, to give you an idea what kind of stuff might be suitable:

* Help and Helpiness
* Otherkin
* Pirates and Brigands

What other themes would you like to see me write about?  Suggest them in a comment below this post. 

Later on I'll collect the suggestions and do some polling.  The most popular topics will be added to the schedule for future fishbowls.  Previously, I have just dumped all the proposed themes into a big poll.  The more themes people suggest, the less well this works.  I have an idea for fixing that problem.  This time, I'm going to run the first large poll with checkboxes so you can express interest in as many themes as you like.  I will then either pick from the most popular ones, or use that information to pull out the favorite themes for a smaller poll to select the ones which will appear in upcoming fishbowls.

You can also help by linking to this post so that more people will see it.  Everyone is welcome to suggest themes.  Everyone will also be able to vote for them later; prompters and donors will get extra votes.  If you link to the call for themes, you can reveal a verse in any open perk poem:
"Testing the Metal
"Dangerous Refuges
"The Marble and the Sculptor
"The Golden Peaches of Peace
"Leaves Upon the Water"
"The Quick Brown Fox"
"Lead Us in Peace"
"We Will Fade into You"

Suggestion:
1. Re: Otherkin: It like it but... I'd suggest using the broadest possible definition of Otherkin. Or better yet add an 'and.' Otherking AND Animal affinities, spirit work, fae connections, shapeshifting, rebirth, transfiguration...something... there is a lot of identity policing out there, which is a major reason why I don't use the term for myself, and I think drawing an inclusive pattern is likely to produce a broader range of more nuanced prompts.
2. Death, dying, legacies, rebirth. Might be more apropos a few months later, in autumn.
3. Water.

Linkback if any: leaves Upon The Water, please.

... especially the modifications to the first for the same reason.

Could I suggest something along the lines of "The Wheel of Life"... which could cover life/death/rebirth, or seasons, or if you want to stretch it a bit, life stages...and if you reallllly stretch it, travelling in general.

I think "Journeys" is more than big enough to deserve its own theme.

Also "What Makes a Home".

And have you done "Families of Choice" yet?
