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 ...

Moss Graffiti
View Source for more exmples

Greetings to all poets, friends and followers. I love the idea of writing in moss upon walls, and the moss sculpture below would be perfect for our garden! There are so many ways to express oneself in poetry or to bring the imaginary to life in an artistic way.
We are into the second week of April madness, here in the Imaginary Garden where we have committed to providing a prompt a day. Of course, OLM does not have a specific prompt or challenge which must be completed but provides an opportunity to link up a poem you have written for NaPoWriMo and linked to other memes. Alternatively, you may make a selection of your choice to share with us today.


Moss Maiden
constructed by brother and sister,
Sue and Pete Hill
Please link up your poetic post below, leave a comment and visit a few of your fellow poets to see what gifts they have left here for us today. Above all, good luck with the second week of the April marathon.

This is Chapter 2 of my Blake inspired/ avant garde project. Don't know yet if there is a Chapter 3.

I love the moss sculpture, and the graffito as well. Happy Monday to all in the Garden, and best of luck to all of us who are tackling a poem a day.

The moss maiden is gorgeous, isn't she? And I can't quite wrap my morning mind around the question of how to make moss graffiti. Fascinating.
I'm not doing NAPOWRIMO, but I've always enjoyed Open Link Monday. Hope to be back later today with a poem of sorts.
