Poem-for-Clarion offer 2 -- Ghosha  
Yay for meeting the first threshold! The second poem is now on offer.

This is a non-rhyming poem in 5 stanzas.  The title word, Ghosha, is Sanskrit; its meanings include both brass, bellmetal and (my paraphrase) chaotic or tumultuous noise.  Which seems like a good word for the first week of Clarion!

This one's an SF poem, of sorts.  It's 33 lines long, so it's in my "long poem" category, and its funding threshold is $20. But! We're $9 into that already, due to rollover from the previous poem, so it only needs another $11.

And here's your teaser *grin*
 
 
Ghosha

System error, Devi says
soft as incense
ash.

What you can do to see the rest:

1) Donate! Clicky on the link and follow the directions there -- that's for paypal or credit cards.

(Note: all these transactions eat 30 cents, so Clarion will get 30 cents or so less than you send. I'm not going to take that into account, either for counting my threshold or for matching the amount, but you might want to.)

2) Post here or email me at shweta @ shwetanarayan dot org to tell me a) that you've donated (so that you will definitely get the poem, whether or not I reach the $20 goal!) and b) how much you donated (so that I know where I'm at).

3) If you can't spare the money but do want to see the poem, signal boosting is most welcome & will make it more likely :)

4) You could donate and signal boost of course!

Must have this poem
I really want to see this poem. I have donated $11.30 (the .30 to make up for what Paypal eats) to Clarion.
