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...

Blackeyed Susans in Hedgie's Garden 

...where Real Toads like to hang out on Mondays.

The invitation to be a part of our poetry family is extended once again to all who care to take a walk in the garden. If you are a regular Monday contributor, why not invite a friend to join you in sharing a poem with us today?  The rules are simple here, because there are none. We ask only that you enter into the spirit of RT by linking your original poetry, of whatever vintage you choose, and visiting the blogs of the other poets who have linked up with you.

Looking at photos last night, I allowed my mind to wander through the year before my very dear friend died. This poem emerged.

Hi Kerry, Margaret - Mine is really for the dolls challenge but since so late, posting in your Open LInk. Hope you are both well! I've been a bit around the bend at work, but happy to try to squeeze something in. Take Care! k.

A little early December craziness from me. What else would you expect?

Hello, Benji. Nice to meet you.

Today I am the White Rabbit, rushed for time which is probably why I am daring to propose a new form of sonnet today. No time to censer or to second guess myself. I'll be back to read tomorrow, friend Toads. Sorry to be so slow!

Hedge, your flowers are beautiful.

Margaret said...

Beautiful Flowers! I was one of the first to post... and will have to come back tomorrow morning and read everyone's poems. Sorry, but I'm exhausted and going to bed :)

Ella said...

Gorgeous photo! I am out the door, to run to the mail, but will return and read all the poems in the open garden and Margaret's challenge! :D
