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 ...

Warm greetings to all poets visiting the garden today! It is hard to believe that it is the beginning of the last week in October. I'm sure our friends in the US and Canada are looking forward to a fun-filled Halloween. Do you have any Gothic tales, dark imagery or ghost stories to share with us today? Please link them up if you do, but this is by no means prescriptive. We welcome any poem of your choice, old or new.

I wish you all a very happy week and hope that everyone will enjoy time spent in the imaginary garden, where it's all about POETRY.

I have a few creepy/amazing stories that I'll try to put in a poem some time. I used to love Halloween, but I am tired of toilet-papered yards and eggs and mischief night ... so I only like adult-accompanied little ones on the streets and at my door. This year I am keeping the porch light off and writing about Wicca instead of answering the door.

My comments have been gobbled up by Blogger so far on 4 posts :(, so I'll just note here that there are some well-observed and keenly felt pens today. ~ M

A historical piece that was hard to put to "poem" but I find the subject fascinating. I suggest everyone who loves (American) history listen to the link I provided

Margaret said...

Will be back in the morning to visit and comment - finished this poem late tonight and need sleep. :)
