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...

Frozen hydrangeas
in Ella's garden

... where real toads gather together.

Welcome to the imaginary garden where all are welcome to share their unique creativity in the form of poetry. I look forward to the Open Link each week, because I know that many crazy talented poets will bring out their best 'hot off the press' poetry, or delve into their archives for a hidden gem. The friendship and support shown to all who link their work here is an added incentive, so please remember to spread the love around by visiting and commenting on other blogs. Your consideration is greatly appreciated. While this link is open to all poets, management reserves the right to remove inappropriate links.

I scheduled tomorrow's post for midnight, and it went ahead and published, even though it is dated for Tuesday. Sorry that OLM has been pushed to second place on the Home page, but we're still there for today!

Good morning, and happy Monday, Toads! Now, don't want to be a downer, but this week's offering is about the upcoming "end of the world" on December 21st. In light of that, you may want to get your Christmas shopping done a little early this year!

Many thanks for the feedback on my poem. I have re-edited based on the commentary, and it is starting to look like a poem I can live with.

Love the image, Ella!!

I had to re-add the correct link...earlier I had just the general link to all recent poetry.

I really appreciate the feedback on my poem. I have further edited it and am far more pleased with the result than before.
