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...

Favim.com

You're in the company of Real Toads!



Good day to all! I do hope you will find a moment today to stop and smell the roses. Life can be so hectic, but time should be taken to pause, reflect and create. I look forward to browsing through the poems that are linked here today. Without belaboring the "rules", I encourage everyone to read, share and leave a few thoughts behind.

Happy start of the week everyone! Thanks for the warm and kind welcome at yesterday's prompt. Looking forward to more challenges! I've linked up an introduction to the long ballad I'm inspired to write from the story of a friend. There's excerpts from the ballad, and I really needed some (a lot of) push and motivation that you guys are great at! :D

I've had a few reports of RT failing to load the linky and/or sidebars. This seems to be a general problem so please be patient and try again later.

Fireblossom said...

Cool, Toads is back. I was having trouble loading it for a little while there.

Jim said...

Thank you, Terry. It's been a while since I signed in, been visiting NZ and Australia.

Great places and fine animals. Spent three plus extra days in Sydney.

I've been finding some inspiration from paintings lately. I included a poem inspired by a Renoir.
