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.

Hungry Eyes...

Haunted Hearts...


Greetings Garden Dwellers, it’s me, Hannah...with something fresh to entice your poetic muses.


I find my mind is drawn to magical, natural wonders in our world.


This is the first of twenty-two incredible places that we’ll vicariously visit through each others imaginings via our well crafted words.


Tunnel of Love in Kleven Ukraine

And for your viewing enjoyment...






I hope that your hungry eyes will find inspiration here and that your poetic hearts will be haunted to write something new for this challenge.


Also, if the title, (of post or place), strikes your fancy write from that perspective...if it’s the trees or the tracks that are striking to you, go from there...if you’d like to bring in facts about the actual location, feel free to gather and sprinkle those amid your musings...


In other words...be inspired and let it flow!


Be sure to roam around and visit your blogging friends...I’m excited to see where our imaginations will carry us!

Thank you and smiles to you all. :)

Well, I didn't even have to open this on my other browser in order to do the viewing, because the photo caught my eye and the words just came. I love when that happens. Thanks, Hannah!

I liked what was posted so far but decided to consider the place as well and perhaps what is at the end, beginning, our outside such a garden tunnel of love...

I had seen images of this place on Weheartit.com, but didn't know what it was! Or where! I am assuming that, although there are train tracks, that no train comes through. If one does, book girl is going to need to mark her place quickly and high tail it out of there!

This was fun. Thank you.

Fireblossom said...

Again...please link to the specific post that goes with the challenge, not to your main blog page, and please link back to Toads.

Hannah said...

Yes, thank you, Fireblossom for clarifying...

These sort of details go a long way in making this experience a little easier for everyone...it can be difficult to locate the correct poems if it is not directly linked and labeled.

Thank you ALL so far for your poems and comments!! This is always so much fun!!

Gorgeous, Hannah! Almost a painting, not a photo. The first thing that popped into my brain, however, was the Bruce Springsteen song, which is a lot nastier. Will see if anything comes along--I do love your prompts.

Kerry O'Connor said...

I love this idea, Hannah! Always exciting to be inspired by new possibilities for poetry.

Hannah said...

Hey you guys, I have my sister as a guest on my blog today!! Come visit her poem and leave lots of goodies!! ♥

Susan said...

Hey Hannah! I am glad you are sticking to places as your next prompt go around. You have such a way with them. Is this also from a book you own? (I'll be back to poem or to read or both after a weekend workshop on resting!)

Susie Clevenger said...

Such a great challenge Hannah! I chose to write about my own love. Feeling its strength today!

Hannah said...

Oh, Susie! That's wonderful! I was going to go with a book I own but chanced upon an amazing site to pull "place-ideas," from. I'm so glad you enjoy them and thank you for your kind words!

That goes for you both too, Kerry and Hedge! Thank you ALL for brightening my Friday!!

Hannah said...

Oops...tired afternoon eyes...Susan...part of that comment above is directed toward you! ♥

Margaret said...

Wow. This poem flew from my fingers... literally it took about three minutes. Not saying it is good - just I was happy enough with the results. Thanks Hannah - I love this new idea of yours and can't wait for the other 21!

Forgive me, I am a naughty Toad. Bursitis, fighting ins. company, planning move, pain, yikes. If Lex wasn't here, life would totally stink. Sorry I am not keeping up; all will be well by mid-June, God willin' and the crick don't rise! Amy The Remorseful

Emma Major said...

Wow is that for real? Magical place indeed.

Hannah said...

Oh, dear...trouble commenting on Kerry's blog...is it just me...I left one that then promptly disappeared... :( I'll try again later.

Hank, Margaret and Emma so glad you enjoyed!!

Amy, no worries...I hope for healing and rest for you, take care. ♥
