Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more?

Today is mild, hazy, and blustery.  Earlier I went out shooting pictures.

Doug and I had a nice long session in the ritual meadow, cutting live brush and dead branches.  \o/  We found an empty bird nest in one bush (I checked that it was empty before we cut the bush).

EDIT 6/28/17: Round 2, I cut more brush.

EDIT 6/28/17: Round 3, I picked up sticks and picked a few mulberries.  Didn't even get a handful, but it's enough to add a bit of flavor to mixed berries.

This poem came out of the May 2, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [livejournal.com profile] my_partner_doug. It also fills the "Fade Into You" square in my 2-1-17 (Love Songs) card for the Valentines Bingo fest. This was the linkback perk poem for the June 6, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl, originally hosted by DW user Dialecticdreamer.[personal profile] dialecticdreamer

ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem is spillover from the May 2, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] ng_moonmoth. It also fills the "body alteration / injury" square in my 4-3-17 card for the  [community profile] origfic_bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by a pool with [personal profile] ng_moonmoth, [personal profile] janetmiles, and EdorFaus. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

Warning: This poem includes some intense and controversial topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. This is hardcore hurt/comfort. It features an intertribal biker gang, Native American spirituality and superpowers, cultural dissonance, gaybashing, a young man tangled in a barbed wire fence, graphic description of injuries, messy medical details while hours away from expert care, which includes a substantial amount of pain that's only partially controllable with resources at hand, panic, trust issues due to previously violations of hair and other body parts, references to the Sun Dance, difficult decisions, risky motorcycle stunts, gender issues, two spirits, and other challenges. However, the overall tone is positive and people take good care of each other. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
