[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith is running her monthly poetry fishbowl event at https://ysabetwordsmith.dreamwidth.org/11070534.html
As she says:
the Poetry Fishbowl is open! Today's theme is "rites / rights of passage." I will be checking this page periodically throughout the day. When people make suggestions, I'll pick some and weave them together into a poem ... and then another ... and so on. I'm hoping to get a lot of ideas and a lot of poems.
I'll be soliciting ideas for adolescents, parents, heroes, villains, fools, clergy and other officiants, explorers, travelers, ordinary people, outcasts, facing thresholds, questioning, debating labels, traveling, accepting the call, refusing the call, getting lost, losing everything, hiding in the closet, coming out, finding your power, speaking truth to power, telling your own story, discovering new places, bedrooms, classrooms, counseling offices, churches, government buildings, the wilderness, cliffs, trails, self-discovery, self-awareness, birth, puberty, getting a job, marriage, sex, parenthood, death, rebirth, radical transformation, the hero's journey, birth control, reproductive freedom, alien transitions, self-sacrifice,
disruptions, adventures, legal rights, famous geographic passageways, and poetic forms in particular. But anything is welcome, really.https://dialecticdreamer.dreamwidth.org/341618.html
to read the linkback poem "Rewriting the Narrative" (9 verses, standalone).
Go, feed the fishes, receive poetry.
