Open Link Monday

Welcome to the imaginary garden...




It is another bright Monday, which means we have the opportunity to bring out our best work to share on Real Toads.  You all know the rules: there are none. Let's have some fun reading and responding to the work of our contemporaries, bearing in mind the starting point of this open link: not only does it afford a showcase for our own work, but a chance to give back to those who support our efforts.

Susie's photography was so inspiring, I couldn't stop writing, so mine is written to another one of her pics. Thanks, Susie. Will be around later to read and enjoy.

Somebody stop me! The dead woman has taken over my life!!

Fireblossom said...

Come on, Toads, help me. We've got to re-animate Kerry!

Kim Nelson said...

An old one...

turtlememoir said...

a new one for me...

@Kerry: don't stop! - I love your dead woman series

@Kim: are you aware that your comment form is closed on that poem?

Sherry Blue Sky said...

No, we wont stop you, Kerry, because we all want to read MORE. I see a book of Dead Woman poems. (God help us all if I start writing them too! hee hee. I am about as close to being dead as you can be, this side of the turf. Cackle.)

Kim Nelson said...

Just fixed my link fellow toads... comments are open. Thanks, Laurie and Turtlememoir!

Margaret said...

I have last monday's open link list to finish... so I might be a bit late in getting through all of these. Today is sunny and in the 70's but lots of rain predicted for the rest of the week.. perfect for catching up then. :)

Love being here in the garden and lovin' all the poetry and constructive comments on mine and others blogs. A great place to learn, this garden. :)

Adura Ojo said...

Alive and happy! Looking forward to sharing with everyone and coming over to yours too.

Hello, Toads.

Semaphore said...

This is becoming a really comfortable home away from home!

Looking forward to a night of poetry... My own offering is something I call "On the Origin of the Fear of Dentists".

I'm behind on reading, but I've been catching up today. Sorry if I haven't gotten to you yet. I'm working my way from the bottom up. :)
