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...



It's another Monday, the last of July, and on Real Toads, this day signifies the beginning of another wonderful week of poetical opportunities. All are welcome to join in the fun by linking up a poem of their choice, and to rest a spell in the garden, take in the tranquility and beauty by reading and sharing your thoughts with us in commentary. The year is rushing by us, sometimes we need to pause and reflect on a single day, before it too becomes a thing of the past.

Happy Monday, Kerry!!!

I like this old building and the way it is depicted. Just the nine window s, almost, with nothing shown for foundation or roof makes it nice and inviting for thought.

I hope I didn't break any Toad convention today. It would have been nice, my way of thinking, had I found my Hyde Park soap box preacher photo but that wasn't to be.

Welcome to all, and I shall be sure to have a good time reading your poems between today and tomorrow.

Whew. Still traveling. Just stopped to post the poem I wrote Saturday. I have missed a number of prompts and poems. I'll be catching up next week when I am back home. Hope it's not too cold there, Kerry.
