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...

© Jaime Clark


... where all toads are in fashion today.

Please join us in the sharing of poetry, by linking up a poem of your choice and visiting with some of the other poets who use this forum. Your comments and support are most appreciated.

PS. Aprille informed me that the photographer of the previous froggie picture is Mustafa Ozturk, and his images are not covered under Creative Commons Attribution despite being "pinned". He has many beautiful macro photos of garden creatures, so I encourage a visit to his site.

First again! But I was very late writing my kitchen poem, so maybe this revival from last November will make up for that. I love Mondays!

Love the photo! I am late to the party, but I made it.

I wrote mine for the Saturday kitchen prompt but am so late I decided to post it here instead. Besides it kind of morphed aways from food images. LOL

I finally posted something I wrote yesterday, so now I'd better start reading some others.
