Open Link Monday

Welcome to the Imaginary Garden...

Source: favim.com
Come and join in with the real toads.

“February. Get ink, shed tears.
Write of it, sob your heart out, sing,
While torrential slush that roars
Burns in the blackness of the spring."
- Boris Pasternak

The new month is under way, Spring (and Autumn) is just around the corner, change is in the air... I'm hoping this all serves as inspiration for poetry. Here is the perfect place to share your latest pieces, or to give new life to a poem that is on ice in your archive. Please take the time to visit the blogs of other poets who link up their work along with yours. Above all enjoy the peace and beauty of the garden.

Had a few attempts at posting. Link doesn't 'stick'. Odd.

I take it all back. Finally got Mr Linky to hang on to my link. Though he must have cold hands as it is blue.

It's wonderful to come home from work to find that OLM is already in swing. Good day to all!

Marian said...

hey J. Cosmo.... not sure why, but i noted your poem linked up at the cinquain prompt, and also here. maybe that was the trouble? i took it down from the other prompt for you. not sure why the linky is wonky.

Hi, this is my first time posting. I took an old poem, shook the dirt off and posted it. Hope you like it.

Judy Roney said...

I am trying to memorize the days that prompts are given and the days when prompts appear. I'm slow moving here. Think I'd better write them down!
