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



If the Imaginary Garden isn't a nice community, I don't know what is. Please spread the happiness by sharing a poem with us today, and reading the work of others. Enjoy!

Hello dear amphibians.. :-) Happy Tuesday to you all. I link up a very short poem today to compensate for the lengthy last week.

Friends, looky looky! Friend of Toads Tim Schaefer, aka Catnip, aka Timoteo and whatever else you wanna call him, has A NEW BOOK!
Poems and short fiction, it's called Last Tango in Timbuktu:

Thanks, Marian, for the news about Timoteo's book.

For the Platform, I've linked one written a year ago – pleased to note that I've moved on a bit since then.

Thanks Marian! Thanks Kerry! Enjoy.

Nothing new, so I've dug through my archives from last December.

I love this quote. Yesterday, I drew in a big whiff of dying autumn leaves, shot through with sunlight and felt a moment of complete happiness and well-being. Wonderful news about Timo's book. Yay!

Hi Marian, I hope 'Happy' is your mood today, ALL DAY.

I am a little blue today,
not for sure why, won't go away
So I searched in my older bins
Searched for 'blue' word, came up with this

gracias, amigos for visiting. i'm having problems visiting your blogs and leaving a message because it won't allow me. i don't know how to correct this. can anyone advise me?

Marco, in my experience sometimes commenting is an exercise in frustration. But I see that here at RT your comment looks like it's through Google Plus, and maybe if you tried commenting using a different platform (like just through Blogger, or OpenID), it would work. Sometimes I have to type in my comments more than once to get them to stick, so I've learned to type a comment, and then copy it, and then when it disappears, I can paste the comment in and try a second time and it works. That's all I got!
