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.

Joining in with a happy Monday wish for all. I am trying to keep up but still dragging after my recent back surgery and its unexpected complications. I am not a patient patient! But love that I can still come to the cyberpoetry world and find such wonderful creations and people. Thanks.

It's Monday and I am steeped in old jazz, the perfect scenario for a poem. Hope all are well, and I'll catch you at your blogs! Amy
