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 toads, poets, friends. Welcome, indeed, to our Open Link of the Christmas week. As is our custom, here in the Imaginary Garden, we continue to host our usual prompts and challenges during the holidays. However, we do so in the full realization that many bloggers choose to take a break over the festive season to enjoy time spent with family and friends. For this reason, I will increase the number of posts which appear on the home page, so that you may revisit a previous prompt and link up later if preferred. many thanks to those who are hosting their challenges at this busy time of year.

Today, you may link up a poem of your choice (and the Christmas theme is also completely optional). I can think of no better gift to give long distance than the gift of words, poetry and generous commentary.

Peace on Earth.
Goodwill to all men (and women).

Hey Kerry--what a sweet message. I am in a situation where I can't listen to videos, but appreciate it. Just wrote a very grim--non-seasonal--poem this morning, but will think of posting. k.

Posting an older poem that has nothing to do with the season--though I wish a very merry yule to all the toads. Will return on the morrow to read and visit.

It's raining and a tad gloomy in my bit of the world, but today is the Winter Solstice so nothing can take away my bright.

Happy Winter Holidays (to those of us in the Northern Hemisphere) and Seasons Greetings to those who aren't. Stay bright! ☼

Mine's certainly not christmassy, but is in response to a prompt set on here about 3 years ago which I never got around to finishing... time flies.

My year-end review is actually not #2. Apologies. Thanks for taking me into the Garden in 2015. Looking forward to a new year with all of you.

Hey Kerry--I am taking the liberty of posting very late a second poem. Late makes me think no one will feel obligated to go! Have a lovely holiday and great new year. Thanks for all. k.
