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 ...

Greetings to all friends, poets and passersby! I am especially excited about the upcoming week because toads have committed to providing a prompt a day in April, in support of all bloggers who are attempting to complete the NaPoWriMo Challenge. This blogsite does not intend to set itself up in competition with any other site in this regard. Our motivation is to provide support and a platform for sharing the poems written by our members and followers. Our links are open to anyone, regardless of whether he or she may be a regular contributor or not. I see it as a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the love of poetry and personal commitment to writing with others who feel the same way.

Back to this week's Open Link: please link up a poem of your choice - if you missed an earlier challenge this week, OLM is the perfect opportunity to catch up. You are welcome to share pieces written for other memes, or to delve into your archives for an older poem. Anything goes... so long as it is poetry. I reiterate that posts with no poetry will be removed from the list below.

Good morning, Toads! I keep confessing my woeful behind-ness, and look forward to catching up. Meanwhile, happy Monday!

Hey Kerry--I'm liking my "secret" poem to OLN since I was so late joining that party.

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Autumn in S.A.

It is still not spring here but one feels it must come soon.

Hi Kerry ~~ I'm really slow and late today, sorry. Over the weekend we traveled, driving, to north Louisiana to visit my SIL and her hubby. That is a 300 mile trip each day.

I like your pin, it is of a mandala type display for me. I would sometimes like to participate in the NaPoWriMo Challenge but timing is wrong again for me.

I had started my entry last week but time ran out and the piece was headed in the wrong direction.
Thank you for your invitation to put it up now.
