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...


Good morning to all friends and followers of Real Toads.  Another Monday is upon us, but I am smiling as it is the first day of school Winter vacation for me, and I have 3 weeks in which to do very little besides giving my writing some much needed attention.  Many of our members are also enjoying the long Summer holiday, and have had the opportunity to be inspired by the wonderful places they have visited, and time spent with family.  If you have any recent poems to share, we would love to read them, but this Open Link provides the opportunity to link up an older piece which lies forgotten in your archives.   Please take the time to read a few of the poems that are to be found alongside your own, because that is how we roll in this garden.

Oh, dear! There was no second inspiration involved- merely the remnant of an earlier copy and paste job, that got in on the act. Perhaps Blogger was not properly awake yet, unlike me today, for I've been up for over an hour already. Sorry for the goof!

I'm so happy for those who have vacation. They told me retirement was one long vacation, but I seem to be busier than ever - people think I have free time so they continue to poach it with their Needs:)I am trying hard to keep up online but it's been crazy. More so than usual.

I am truly loving Mondays these days because they are free and trustworthy and they have this welcome from the Garden. I revised two "weapon" poems for this week. Time to rethink and revise is a fine occupation, a bit like worship when you think about it--but so is everyday. Have a good one!
