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 ...

Favim.com
It is that time of the week again, when we get to kick off our shoes and relax in the garden. Bring along your latest poem to share or give an older piece a second chance to be read. There are no special requirements for our open link - we ask only that you spread the love around. Visit the blogs of others who use this space and remember to return the favour, when someone visits you. Commentary and support are always appreciated.

What a beautiful photo, Kerry. It has led me to a little verselet while it is still Sunday evening here in the wild wild west of North America.
A small thing, Kerry, but mine own.

Our family being between 6 foot [me, the little one :-)] and upwards to 6 foot 8, we are going to have difficulty visiting this pretty little house.

I like the gallery you developed from open link days,Kerry. I've been thinking a lot about apples this week.

My poem grew out of Hannah's Transforming Friday, but did not have the POV requirement, so I am sharing it here today. Thanks for the inspiration, Hannah!

Toads: I have submitted work in the form of photos. Hope they all load correctly. Surely a poem will follow soon.

Such a pretty garden you found, so inviting. I love the little garden house,
I would like one to have it in my garden. [If I had A GARDEN. :)]

Hey Toads, there's a giant rubber duck headed our way...shades of Godzilla! And one of the eeriest coincidences you've ever witnessed on Catnip--today!

Margaret said...

I want to be IN that photo! sigh. Will be back later this afternoon to read and enjoy :)

Ella said...

I wish I really was in that photo having Iced tea with all of you Toads ;D

Off to chase Blue and pick up daughter from school. I'll be back to see all these lovely offerings!

Better late than never.

Thank you for the prompts that stretch my imagination.

Got off to an early start with my poem and now am very late returning comments to other toads and friends. My husband is back from a business trip, and the dog is very happy. Will be back with comments when I can.

I too am late doing the rounds of comments! Too many commitments and too little time! But this is one pleasurable space in time enjoying others' poems!
