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





Meow! It’s open mic time in the Imaginary Garden. Welcome to The Tuesday Platform!

The rules are simple: Please link up a poem of your choice, and take some time during the week to visit other cats who have shared their poems. Dancing is encouraged, but is not required. Meowy easy!

I added a glosa I wrote.. This week I will go and listen to Nick Cave, and with the times as they are I think the weeping song is appropriate.

Omg. What if Lizzie Borden were a ditz? That's where I went with mine.

I love the picture,Marian. I will be free to read and respond tomorrow but will be tied up at another parents' meeting tonight.

I hope everyone is having an awesome Tuesday.

My poem today owes a debt to Magaly who probably should have been named in it. Thank you for this platform, Toads.

Something I did long ago...but wanted to dust back off and share. Hope everyone had a nice Mother's day and weekend. :-)

Hey Rallantanda, I suspect that my comments never go through on your blog. I just commented and got an error message in my email... and I'm certain this has happened before when commenting at your place. Not sure why or what to do about it. I love, love LOVE this poem that you shared! I want to go there. Beautiful!
