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.

Wednesdays with Peggy
Point of View and Place
Greetings fellow Toads. Peggy in Southern California here. This time I have a very toady prompt for us all. And I hope to see many of you giving it a try.
Point of view and place are both important elements of poetry and story telling. This time take the point of view of an animal -- lets stretch a bit and make it NOT a dog or a cat. You can even choose an imaginary or mythical animal.
Take this animal to a place you are not in every day. It can be a real place or an imaginary place at any time past, present or future. Tell us about this place through the eyes, ears, nose, skin (or whatever) of your animal.
There is a lot of this in children's literature, if you want inspiration. You can even take and animal from Dr. Seuss to a place of your choosing.
So choose an animal, take it someplace--and write!
I hope it will be fun. I look forward to seeing what you all write. Link it with Mr. Linky below and then visit the other Toads and see what they have linked.
