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...

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...I could walk through my garden forever.” 
 ― Alfred Tennyson

My customary Monday welcome is extended to all visitors to the garden, old and new. I encourage our regulars to invite a friend to join us in sharing and reading poetry. This is an opportunity to make new connections and create bonds between writers of poetry. Please link up a poem of your choice, and enjoy whatever time you are able to spend in our garden.

Good Morning, Kerry. It's bedtime here but I know its pretty there. I like your pretty flower find, the words go with them perfectly.

My post is devilish today, I'm outa here.

I should be asleep. Maybe now this morsel is out, I can.

Morning Kerry, all -- It's strange to me that myths writ large across the stars echo truths that we eventually find deep inside us. Somehow my reading about the Titans who were dispatched by a thunderbolt from Zeus to Tartarus is sending bubbles up around the tale of the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370--an event our science can't reckon. Anyhoo--

Good morning toads,
I am not sure whether or not it is allowed to link an earlier post here or if it has to me brand new.
If my entry is out of order, then please remove the link.

Morning Toads! I'm up early on my day off! Brazil is playing against Cameroon today and the country takes another day off this World Cup.

Wish you all have a wonderful day!

I know that world cup fever, Kenia!
