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...

... with Real Toads 

I'm sure you all have that feeling of settling into a new year, wondering what it will bring in the way of new challenges and the realization of plans and dreams. I'm sure that by now, everyone is familiar with the etiquette of sharing pieces on the RT Open Link, so I do not intend to repeat the regulations. We are here to enjoy poetry, so let's begin. Who's first?

At least I will leave the first comment! As I look at my recent poems I see that so many have already been visited by a number of Toads or were written to Toad prompts I don't know what to post. Guess I can go back my time with Toads so I will try that! Hope you are all enjoying this new year so far.

Good morning.
I'm finding Monday mornings harder as I get older, but the RT get-together really helps. Thank you all.

Nice winter scenery. What a lovely garden to have.

The joys of aching--I meant the joys of aging, yes, that's the poem--and I mean every word of it. The writers at this site continue to enchant. Thank you, Kerry.

Good morning, Toads. I recycled one you have likely read before, but somehow it just felt like The One for today. I have a cleaning job but will be back this afternoon to read your lovely offerings.......

Wrote this one this morning as I was trying to write something else entirely!
