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 Imaginary Garden's Open Link




Enjoy the interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe's Dream Within a Dream! It is something to keep in mind that once a poem has been written and shared with a greater audience, it may then be subject to interpretation and serve as further artistic inspiration to subsequent generations. I find this to be a most profound characteristic of the written word.

Tuesdays provide a wonderful opportunity for us to share our own poetry. I always look forward to reading, contemplating and responding to the wealth of creative thought which is linked up each week. Thank you to all those who drop by and contribute to our poetry community.

Thank you, Kerry. Poe is at the top of my favorite list and this one really intrigues me. I could not do it justice but I did enjoy keying my ten lines. I hope I conveyed a bit of sadness with a 'grain' of hope. I am not Poe but would loved to have been.
Thanks again.

Good morning, friends! Hope everyone is well.
I am surprised to be offering up anything on the stage today, as I've been completely distracted and unproductive, at least in writing poetry anyway. Hope everyone here is more focused than I am. :)
Happy week, Marian

You are certainly right, Kerry--the written word quite malleable beyond what we intend even. Thanks as always. k.

That interpretation of Poe's poem was WONDERFUL. What a treat!

Speaking of things open to interpretation, I'm sharing with you some recent erotica.
