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...

... the habitat of Real Toads.

A warm welcome is once again extended to all on-line poets who would like to share their poetry with the Real Toads community. I like to see this as a forum with the sole function of encouraging creativity of the written word and hope that those who make use of our open link embrace the opportunity to share and participate by reading and commenting on the work of fellow poets.

I do not like being first, but fear I may forget to post tomorrow. I enjoyed the desert poems and the 14 liners. I post one that fits the latter. I'll be by to read on Tuesday.

After the heavy dose of hard-hitting reality of Sunday's 14 liner, I decided to share something on a lighter note :) It isn't quite lyrical poetry, but it was something fun!

Have a great week Toads!

Good morning,
I'm with Mixi: something frivolous today.
Kerry, send us some warm sunshine, will you? It's beem grey here for what seems weeks.

aprille said...

'beem'? 'been' of course.
For a minute there I thought I'd stumbled on a brand new word.
Sadly not so: it is obsolete for a 'trumpet'. Who'd have thought.

It has been a while since I participated in open link Monday. It's so nice being able to read everyone else's works again. :)

Also, ack, I made a mistake with my link and posted someone else's work. Please remove the first post I linked. Thank you!
