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.

Get Listed: Final for 2014

Lots of rituals this time of year.

Here's one more: thank you to Chief Toad, Kerry O'Connor, and to all the toad dwellers and visitors, for making this site both challenging and welcome.

And now, the final word list for 2014.

music, few, grip, feather, glove, steam, embrace, rise, fall, water, shadow, bed

If you wish, write of the year gone, or up ahead, or really whatever strikes your fancy. I'm a bit less enamored of ritual as I get older.

As a reminder: select three or more words (or reasonable variants) from this list for your poem, post it to your blog, then link the pen itself to Mr. Linky below.

Then please visit again to read your fellow's work, comment if you would (we all do enjoy the feedback)... and best wishes for 2015.

cheers,

~ M (grapeling)

On several sites I can't post comments under my wordpress address so I am posting google. It won't take you to my imaginary garden poem though you'll have to click on the Mr Linky.

Gracias to you too! I'm sorry that I am so late posting to this, but I've been pretty bogged down with non-internet life for the last couple days. So used all the words that you listed because I enjoy a wonderful challenge as always, and I hope all of you enjoy it! :) Have a great New Year guys! I can't wait to continue this experience I've shared with you all, into next year.

I'm behind visiting and commenting on three challenges now… It's been a busy New Year here at our house and it won't be until Monday that I will be able to catch up. But I will! Happy New Year, everyone.
