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...






Greetings to all poets and friends. Today the platform is yours to share a poem of your choice, and also take your seat in the audience as your fellow poets make us the gift of their words.

On a personal note, my obligation as a marker of our National Senior Certificate examinations will see me away from home from Sunday, November 29 until Sunday, December 13. My ability to visit the Garden will be extremely limited. Marian has graciously agreed to host the first two Tuesday Platforms of December and Hedgewitch will present FLASH 55 PLUS! My thanks in advance to all.

I, too hope all goes well, Kerry! It sounds like such a worthy cause. I hope you will share a bit about it-with us~

I struggled with Karin's prompt and had to get over my writer's block.
Thank you, Karin! Thank you, Kerry!

Posting so late... just got back from NYC (Brooklyn) late last night. Really SHOULD BE CLEANING MY HOUSE, but....

I will be around to visit and comment for this Tuesday Platform AND last Tuesday's Platform. It might take me a day or two, but I'm not complaining. You guys are always inspiring.
