One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Thank you for the chance to give this Sestina a wider view. This will probably be my last post for awhile, so enjoy.

Since all my recent poems have been linked up to Real Toads already, I'm sharing something from earlier in the year which did not get many views. It's a touch of mythology with a modern flavour.

I love the moon and often write poems about it..I thought I might share one of them..

Robert Lloyd said...

I put this one up because I kind of find it to be a favorite for the week. I will be back around shortly to visit the others. Kerry thanks for the open link.

I wrote this poem this morning using prompts from my online writing group as a 'wordle.' Amazingly, it worked pretty well. Sharing here for the first time anywhere.

Happy Monday, kids! I posted a very old one, about a character who homesteaded in the early days of Clayoquot Sound.

A great idea Kim. My poem is one I've
been thinking on for a while.
