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.

The Sunday Mini-Challenge

I am delighted to have this opportunity to share the photographic talent of Daryl Edelstein on Real Toads once again. Daryl has the most amazing eye for a great shot, and she always finds the beauty in her cityscapes. Take a look at this photo entitled Water Towers, on her blog Out and About in New York City and scroll down through the wonderful images she has on display at Through My Eyes.

I asked Daryl if she would share a few of her "storefront window" series with us, which she graciously agreed to do. If you upload a picture to your blog, please acknowledge the name of the photographer, and provide a link back to either of her sites.

The Sunday Challenge is posted on Saturday at noon CST to allow extra time for the creative process, so please do not link up old work which kind of fits the image.  This is in the spirit of our Real Toads project to create opportunities for poets to be newly inspired.  Management reserves the right to remove unrelated links but invites you to share a poem of your choice on Open Link Monday.

Oh, how wonderful, Kerry. I was just thinking about Real Toads having another Daryl prompt the other day. I follow one of Daryl's blogs and enjoy her e-mail response to comments SO much. A wonderful person with a great eye for a good photo.

I really enjoyed these photos and have linked up one poem I've written but I've also written a second based on another of her photos. If you'd like to read it it is here

I know I should hold on to them to revise, but today they fly and I can not pin them down til I see them through your eyes. And so, here it is with thanks to Kerry and to Darryl.
