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

Photo by Marian Kent, taken at the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, MA

My religion is nature. 
That’s what arouses those feelings 
of wonder and mysticism and gratitude in me.
                              -- Oliver Sacks

Welcome to the open stage in the Imaginary Garden. Please share with us a poem of your choice today, and the visit the offerings of others. We look forward to enjoying the harvest of your words.

Hey Marion. Thank you for the Oliver Sacks quotes. I just liked him so much. I just downloaded some of the books I'd not read. (I had only read The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat, and Uncle Tungsten, both of which were just great.) He will be very missed. k.
