Poetry fishbowl!  
My friend ysabetwordsmith is doing her February poetry fishbowl today. Her topic is
...dreams. I am especially looking for: dreamers, visionaries, devices (magical or technological) that deal with dreams, topics of dreams or visions, hopes and wishes, despairs and nightmares, events in dreams, dreamy plot twists, settings in which dreams customarily happen, unexpected settings in which dreams happen, settings inside of a dream, and poetic forms in particular.

A Poetry Fishbowl is poetry written approximately to spec -- you give her a prompt, she'll write a poem. She may combine prompts from more than one person in a given piece. You'll get a copy (via email) of the poem written to your prompt, and she'll post a comment with the title and a short description, including cost.

She usually posts one free poem per month as a teaser. If you sponsor a poem (can be any poem listed, doesn't have to be the one written for you), she will post it on her journal as a separate entry, and you receive non-exclusive reprint rights, which means you can re-post it (with proper credit, of course!) in your journal or blog.

Go feed the fish! If at least one new person posts a prompt or sponsors a poem, ysabetwordsmith will post an additional free poem.
