The half-price sale in Shiv is now complete. Three new poems have been sponsored and posted in full. I still need to start a new epic with a partial payment that came in late last night.

The [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam ran this weekend on a theme of "Baker's Dozen." See my activities.


Poetry in Microfunding:
"A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Aidan and Mrs. Ozenne discuss secure attachment.  "Essential for Human Survival" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Cassandra.  Groundhog and Cassandra explore the snack room.  "The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies.  Valor's Widow finds out what Stylet has in his backpack.

Weather has been intermittently wet but is drying out now.  Today is sunny with a little breeze.  There is standing water in the fields again.   The mourning dove nest under the kitchen window on the porch still has two white eggs.  Currently blooming: violets, dandelions, honeysuckle, spiderwort, carnations, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias, chives, white globe allium, firecracker plant, torenia, yarrow, blackberries.  The iris and peonies are winding down.  Two big flower stalks are coming up from the yucca plants in the white garden.

This poem is spillover from the April 4, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from DW user Technoshaman.  It also fills the "white" square in my 4-1-17 card for the Month of Rainbows fest.  This poem belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

This microfunded poem is being posted one verse at a time, as donations come in to cover them.  The SALE rate is $.25/line, so $5 will reveal 20 new lines, and so forth. There is a permanent donation button on my profile page, or you can contact me for other arrangements. You can also ask me about the number of lines per verse, if you want to fund a certain number of verses.

Today has been cool and breezy.

Round 1, we picked up sticks in the ritual meadow.

Round 2, I watered potted plants on the porch.

Round 3, I planted moonflowers in the barrel garden and the support wire for the telephone pole.  I also put more morning glory seeds around the wire.  Then I trimmed grass around the wagonwheel garden.

This afternoon we went out to Harbor Freight and bought a convertible handtruck (it can go on two wheels or four), a toolkit with a very nice assortment of items, and a moving blanket (which doubles as a picnic blanket).  :D
