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 ...

HD Wallpapers PK


It is World Earth Day and surely a wonderful day to spend in our Imaginary Garden. Let us all accept the challenge to work towards a cleaner, greener Earth.
It is also the end of the third week of NaPoWriMo and those who have participated will write their 22nd poem today. I hope that you will be sharing it with us on OLM. For our regular visitors, the invitation remains to link up a poem of your choice. I look forward to an enjoyable day of poetry reading!

Actually, Canada has Earth Day in June, giving me a chance to celebrate the Earth twice. Bonus!
Now to see if I can write something earthy, or have to resort to a limerick again.

Got to get to sleep. I may be able to write an earth day poem much later today! Instead I have a "what if."

Good morning, Kerry, and everyone. I'm linking my Lune poem from Grace's Sunday mini-challenge. Have a good week :)

Kay L. Davies said...

Okay, I'm done. It took forever, or an hour or two, I forget which. The smallest part is the poem, but it qualifies me for the poem-a-day, and the rest is a story I hope some of you find interesting.

Earth Day? more like Soil Day over at our place. Digging and planting now that it is finally safe. Earth - dirt - soil - compost, what's the difference. The black stuff. I'm writing my poetry bent double with a spade or a hoe in my hand. Villanelle Day today. Have fun with words everybody.

While I applaud the basic premise of World Earth Day, I couldn't be serious long enough to give it the attention it deserves - so back to a slant reference to Alice in Wonderland, for me!

Love the Earth, each little piece of her. Spring is always a month late here, so we are so, so delighted to see her come.
