ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem is spillover from the October 4, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] siliconshaman. It also fills the "personal growth" square in my 8-1-16 card for the Survival Bingo fest.  Based on an audience poll, this poem is the free epic for the February 7, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl reaching its $200 goal. It belongs to the Berettaflies thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Unsold Poems from the February 7, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl

The Crowdfunding Creative Jam went well this weekend, and I got several prompts written. So far nothing written to my prompts, but one person has a work in progress.

Voting is currently open for the 2017 Rose & Bay Awards. These are the categories:
Other Project

Poetry in Microfunding:
"A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Aidan and Saraphina interact with new friends.  There is plenty of room to open a new epic or two for the Tuesday fishbowl.  "Essential for Human Survival" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Cassandra.  Groundhog shows Cassandra a brochure for the Kwan Yin House of Compassion.

The weather is ridiculously warm, almost 70F here.  Recently at the birdfeeder I have seen a few doves, some sparrows and grackles, and a cardinal.  The squirrel was digging around in the yard.  Many of my flowers are sprouting and the Eranthis is blooming bright yellow in the goddess garden.
