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.

Many Thanks for hosting, MZ. I wrote something on the fly. It's been a busy weekend.

Wrote something last night.. After being to a party.. Sometimes what you write when you are drunk almost make sense.. And then I polished it a little this morning..

I went for the slapdash humor and after reading the poems presented here I'm a little embarrassed - wow, so many beautiful, wise poems this time in only 55 words!

Hey MZ and 55ers! I hope Galen is well and happy and enjoying his freedom from the count! I've edited my last line many times but am sticking with it for now. k.

Loved the challenge of sticking to 55 words.

I usually try to read every post in these challenges and comment on as many I can. This is a particularly crazy busy week for me, so it may take me awhile to get to everyone, but I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for the inspiration that you always are to me!!
