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.

The Tuesday Platform


Welcome to The Tuesday Platform!

On Tuesdays, the Imaginary Garden is open to all. We Toads offer a place for you to showcase your work: an open link, a stage, a platform, an open mic. You are invited to link up with us. Share a new poem or an older piece, it’s up to you.  

Remember that links in the Garden do not expire, so feel free to link up on Wednesday or later in the week; please do take some time during the week to read the work of other participants. Speaking for myself, I value the opportunity to snuggle up with poems from all of you during the ice of January at least as much as sharing my own and receiving feedback. 

So, bring us your words! We look forward to reading your poems.

Hi Everybody!
I am out of pocket for most of today, and don't have anything new to share either, but HELLO and I am with you in spirit! Will figure out a time when I can hop around visiting all of you. Ribbit!

First time leaving a poem here amongst the toads. Uhm not that you are all toads. Well you get what I mean. Looking forward to reading everyone's poems. Thank you for the platform to post some of my work!
