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

Welcome to the imaginary garden...

Hannah's Lil' Lanterns

...where real toads like to hang out every Monday.

Once again, an invitation is extended to all-comers to make use of our open link.  Here you may share your latest piece of writing, seek commentary on an older poem lost to your archives or simply enjoy the wonderful reading on offer by our members and friends. 
Please remember that our Linkys do not expire, so late additions are always welcome.  Our only request is that you join in our poetic ramble in the spirit in which it is intended: link original work, and return commentary.

I agree, Susan! I've been feeling very inspired lately.

Morning, Toads!

Since we were writing in the style of Louis Macneice yesterday, I remembered another poem I wrote a while ago which was inspired by his work. Since I have nothing new for today, I've posted it for today's open link.

Hi, poets. So happy to be back in the land of the living (writing) although all I could manage was a bit of haiku this week. Looking forward to reading some of your poems, however!

Hello, toads :) New poem inspired by a walk in the forest, also linked to Hannah's Transforming Fridays. :)

Sorry I'm always a "day late and a dollar short" as my old dad would say. This is a new one.

Here's a new one which is in the style of children's poetry ad seems to be my current muse.
