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!


Why, look at that moon! 
Way up in the sky seeing everything.

There is one rule for The Tuesday Platform: SHARE.

Share a poem with us.
Share some time reading poems this week.
Share your thoughts when moved to do so.

Easy! Enjoy!

I got up at 4am to look at the super moon on Monday morning, to see the eclipse. Great choice of video clip, Marian. It made me smile. Thanks for hosting today, even though I have nothing new to share. I know I am always guaranteed some good reading on a Tuesday.

Alas, it was too overcast here to see the super-moon. But I had already been busy creating a great red orb of my own! (Grin.)

Rallentando -just in case you check back here - I always get a kick back to my email of "delivery failure" when I post to your blog.

Colleen of Looseleaf Notes - I'm not sure I ever am able to post on your blog either. Always seem to not get through... just wanted to let you know as well.

Good morning, friends! I feel lucky to have caught a glimpse of the blood moon eclipse in real life, even though the internet exploded with photos we were all able to enjoy. It was eerie when we saw it, shadowy and red. Very cool!
Kerry, I too have not a thing to share. I have been mightily distracted these past weeks/months. With any luck, I'll get my groove back. Still think I'm taking on 30 Poems in November so SOMETHING has to give. :)
xooxxoxo to all of you! Marian

Getting to stop in and write more with you! I like that we share Magpie Tales is there anywhere else you guys write in case I want to try?

I am in for this we got pics of the Supermoon Eclipse and I made an animation out of some frames for my poem which I'm working on now.

Have a good week Toads it's going fast!

I read everyone's poems for this and only one person visited mine! Not very Toad-like! I even included an animated photo of the super moon eclipse.
