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! #9

Welcome to the 9th "Play it Again, Toads!" and a video of my son singing a clip of "Railroad Growlin'" (a song he wrote) and photos of my most recent summer vacation …

And that's what we are doing here.  Revisiting and or replaying any of the archived Imaginary Garden's  challenges.  Choose your own (the archive is on the sidebar 2011-2014) or select from the three I have highlighted below.

You may use the photos (or video) on this post or use your own - but please combine them with an archived challenge.


(a clip from) Railroad Growlin' written and performed by William Bednar:


Original poems only and link your specific post to Mr. Linky below.  Make it clear which challenge you are resurrecting by including a link.  Thank you, and I look forward to reading your poems.  

1)   Poetic Exerciese (or Chakras) with Ella  HERE

2)  Do You Believe in Magic?  from Fireblossom Friday - HERE

3)  The Secret Life of Bees (Imagined by Susie Clevenger)  HERE

LOVE the idea of "play it again" ... over at FatScribe, I do "redux" series. Great voice on your son, and great post! (Ukulele?)

Helen said...

Love, love, love your son's video! What a talent .... (photos are pretty nifty too)

Margaret said...

Yes, he is playing a Ukulele - it's easy to travel with. I am just getting around to computer time and it's almost midnight… I see everyone must be taking advantage of some lovely weekend weather. Hope to see some poetry tomorrow, but if you are too busy enjoying yourself - perhaps that is even better!

Love the photographs, Margaret. Thanks for hosting this weekend--you gave me a chance to finally do Kerry's Superstition prompt I missed.

I needed to write... been taking a break, so I headed here first, and Susie's challenge grabbed me by my quill paw...

Nice to see others post, will keep checking in! Love to all, Amy

Your son's video reminds me of one of my old favorite bands, Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks. Now he just needs two gals to help him out!

Your photos are, as always, wonderful, and I'm tickled to have one of my posts included.

I used Ella's.

Margaret, your son seems ready for Broadway!

Margaret, I love the video, the photos and the chance to play it again. I went way back to before I discovered the garden, Kerry's prose poetry challenge on November 16, 2011.
