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.

Play it Again, Toads! #7


Welcome to the seventh "Play it Again, Toads!".  The images posted here are an OPTION - they do NOT have to be used in this challenge.  If you DO use one, you must combine it with an archived challenge.   You may select a challenge from the three I highlight below OR choose any challenge the Imaginary Garden has ever offered.  The archive in on the right sidebar - 2011-2014.

The images are from a kayaking trip my husband and I took with two of our children a couple of weekends past.  The lake is located just around the corner from our home and is the fist time we have enjoyed a day upon it's surface.  It won't be the last!  How is it I (we?) often enjoy such treasures close to home so rarely?  I think prioritizing is in order.  



Here are three challenges from previous July posts:






Please, original poems only and link your specific post to Mr. Linky below.  Make it clear which challenge you are resurrecting by including a link.  


Remember, Open Link Monday is around the corner and available for those who are unable to finish this weekend.  I look forward to reading your poems and I will be checking back here for any late submissions.

Very cool-looking place, Margaret. It's fun to find the secrets all around us. Thanks for the challenge--I had a half-written scribble which grapeling's word list helped flesh out.

My Sunday has been so rushed but I have some ideas in the pipeline which I hope to give some structure to before tomorrow.

Everyone is welcome to post late. I just finished commenting on Mama Zen's prompt and am having a stab at Hannah's - see if I can tie it in with this prompt…. hmmm..

I WILL be back later tonight - out to enjoy the respite between the storm clouds.

I selected Kenia's prompt, though that will shock none of you! I do like these features Margaret. Thanks for doing this!
