Reminder: It's FISHBOWL day over at ysabetwordsmith's!

Ysabet is doing her monthly poetry fishbowl, where you give her prompts, she writes poetry, and if you or anyone else sponsors a poem, she posts it!

Today's theme is "The Magic of Everyday Things":
I'll be soliciting ideas for ordinary people, commonplace miracles, ordinary but important events, everyday objects or creatures, things we take for granted, folklore or superstitions about everyday things, and poetic forms in particular.


My prompts were,
How about the way math shows up so much in nature, like sunflower spirals matching the Fibonacci series? Or the Golden Mean?

A modern superstition -- I know I'm not the only one who, when going through a traffic light that's turned yellow, taps my steering wheel and the roof of the car. I'm not sure if that's meant as an expression of gratitude (for still being upright and in control of the car) or a blessing / invocation (like knock on wood), but I always do it when I'm driving.


Go feed the fish!
