Poetry fishbowl open at ysabetwordsmith's!

This month's description:

Today's theme is "DNA, genetic engineering, and evolution." 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.

She posted a sample poem a week ago, and I hope you'll head over to the fishbowl and prompt a poem of your own.

The DNA of Poetry

The DNA of poetry
is there in the form --
lines and verses,
meter and rhyme.
It turns on itself,
a spiral staircase
of meaning and
inviting the reader
to make the climb.
In crowdfunding,
half-rungs reach out,
waiting for completion.
