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

Da Poetry Lounge, Los Angeles (2011)
Photographer Unknown


“My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.” ― John Lennon

A warm greeting to all poets and friends! You are most welcome to join our platform. Please share a poem of your choice, and stay awhile to enjoy the work of fellow poets in this gathering place where your passion for the written word is appreciated by all who stop by.

Good morning, Kerry. I like your John Lennon quote (I liked John Lennon as well). I may lift it for my header for a bit, thank you.
Today is the CONSTANZA that I just finished late last night for your weekend 'Do it Again' Challenge. It was fun, I wish John Lennon could have been around to have identified.
