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, friends and followers on this fine Tuesday in February. There are some poems that bind us to other people, perhaps a shared favourite, perhaps giving words to mutual feelings. As such, poetry goes beyond art to become the vernacular of human connectivity.

Our Open Link provides the platform for new connections to be made in the sharing of poetry. All are welcome to join in by linking up a poem of your own choice.
