HEY WORLD! You can make ME happy by prompting for new poetry here, or better yet tossing a few dollars into the Fishbowl. You know we need to light some candles right now.

If you don't have a Dreamwidth or LiveJournal account, you can still post. Tell her LibraryGeek sent you.

Theme of the month is "All the news is dark, so light a candle." I'll be soliciting ideas for journalists, reporters, radio hams, creatures of the night, demons, villains, heroes, angels, lovable monsters, the misunderstood, outcasts, nemeses, oppressors, troubled relationships, monster hunters, activists, torchbearers, leaders, explorers, lighting a candle, burning the candle at both ends, candlemaking, fleeing in terror, resisting oppression, facing your demons, passing the torch, instilling hope, tikkun olam, the dark, the chandlery, the Valley of the Shadow, newsrooms, garrets, liminal zones, mad science labs, The Tower, deep forests, other places of light and shadow, torches, candles, bioluminescence, glowing weapons, a ray of hope, the darkest hour is just before dawn, radical transformation, beeswax, Chanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa, the moon, cthonic symbolism, good, evil, radio, newspapers, magazines, and poetic forms in particular. But anything is welcome, really. If you manage to recommend a form that I don't recognize, I will probably pounce on it and ask you for its rules. I do have The New Book of Forms by Lewis Turco which covers most common and many obscure forms.

This is a favorite author of mine, offering to write poetry to other people's prompts. On this election day, maybe we can celebrate creativity and winning without defeating anyone. If you are a new prompter or donor, we all get a new free poem.
