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.

Open Link Monday

Calling all toads to the garden...






Welcome, once again, to the place where anything goes on a Monday: no prompts no parameters only poetry.  Select a piece to share with others, be it something new and shiny, or something a little dusty that deserves to be revisited.  Please remember to visit the blogs of other writers who have linked their work alongside yours, and return a review with one of your own.

Just a few lines of doggerel--or maybe snake-erel?--that popped up. It's a new one, very short.

I'll be around in the morning to do some reading.

Susie Clevenger said...

Mine has bad words in it. Toads, cover your ears!

Mary Mansfield said...

I'm sharing special this week. I wrote this the night two of my best friends buried their seven month old daughter, definitely the hardest writing I've ever done. Tomorrow would have been Misty's first birthday.

Marian said...

good morning, Toads. a cobwebby day for me, what an auspicious start to the week. and you know, now i'm marking my productivity based on whether i got somethin' new to share here on Mondays. maybe you are, too. well this week, i don't! so here is a poem i wrote a few weeks back. sigh.

This is my Saturday morning poem, so thanks to those who have already reviewed it.

Laurie Kolp said...

I linked this one to yesterday, too. It's hot off the press, written just minutes ago with Mary Ann's beautiful inspiration. Have a great week everyone!

Got to know about this on FB. Sharing a poem to take the feel. :)

Kerry O'Connor said...

Ugh! FB :(
I suppose it was only a matter of time before we became fodder for social networks.

I'm new to blogging, but just started one....I've posted some of my older poems and will add new ones as time allows. Thank you so much.

I will be back to catch up on my commenting... busy week AND "snow day" (ha ha what NC thinks is a snow day) with all kids at home... ADORABLE photo!

Heaven said...

For the new (and old toads) here ~ Can you please turn off your word verification so commenting is easier?

Thanks ~

Mary said...

Better late than never. I just wrote a new very short one.

I agree with Heaven. Let's ban word verification!

It seems like there were a lot of off-kilter love songs, so...

Kay L. Davies said...

I forgot to leave a comment when I posted my day's effort, my entire day's output.
But I want to say I love the photo here. I just discovered a name on a branch near the bottom, but my poor old eyes can't quite make it out. Like those new Blogger verification words, hard to see and harder to copy.
