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, end of April edition! You are almost there, friends. It’s the home stretch. Here’s your chance to link up a poem not written for a prompt (do we have any of those this month?!) or to share any poem you like, old or new. We want to read it!


I will confess to having run dreadfully behind in writing this month (just caught up yesterday, but that feeling is fleeting in April), and most especially I have lately been mostly unable to keep up on reading and commentary. Still, your writing and your energy is motivating to me, and I hope everyone feels that way! Let’s all visit each other with gusto this week.


Write like the wind! Read like the… wind! Ah, I got nothing new. YET. Enjoy, friends!

This is the last of my long sonnet series. It consists of all the first lines of my previous 14 sonnets but I had to make a few changes to make it flow a little. There will not be any more sonnets in a while I think...:-) Have a wonderful Tuesday.

I made a new poem, as I wanted to write one every day this April. Now I have to get to bed, and will read others tomorrow.

Kerry, I think most of us have fallen behind. I've been trying to catch up for the last couple of weeks, but regardless of how hard I try there is always more poetry than I can read--I've chosen to pretend that being a day behind is just like being in time (if it's April). *giggles*

Today is a hospital day for me, but a light one (I get to keep my phone. Wooohooo! So I will do some reading there. I might evern get caught up...).

Happy Tuesday, everyone. I shall visit you sometime today. ♥

P.S. Marian, you can slap me later for calling you Kerry. I blame it on April poetry overload *coughs... and runs away in shame*.

I found an owl feather on my favorite nature trail. I am yawning, but inspired to read poetry! Thank you, Marian~
