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...

Good day to one and all! I hope that the days of August will prove to be very mellow, and that all poets will feel newly inspired as seasons begin to think of change. We can still look forward to our current features - A Toads Favo(u)rite poem on Tuesdays, and Toads in Tandem on Thursdays this month. I have felt so fortunate to have the opportunity to read the inspirational poems our members have shared over the least few weeks, and my thanks to all who have stopped by and left their comments in support of this initiative. It means a lot to me and to those who have taken the trouble to prepare these posts.

Please feel free to add your link to our open forum today - pause a while to read, reflect and give back to those who have shared their work in generous spirit.

Oh so pretty today, Kerry!! :)

I like the violet title this
morning also, it helps to set our
mood to vivid purples and yellows.

Back, back, and swimming in the influences of both Marge Piercy and Sara Teasdale--big strokes in the small ponds of female writers. Feels kind of homey here. Thanks, Kerry!
