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.

Poems in April: FASHION ME YOUR WORDS ~ so i can dance



Earth Day started as an environmental awareness event in the United States in 1970. Now celebrated worldwide, events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection; coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year. The theme for 2016 is "Trees for the earth"

Today April 22nd is Earth day. So, lets us celebrate the stewardship our planet : FASHION ME YOUR WORDS ~ so i can dance
Additionally while its easy and its okay to get caught up in the rhythms, Please limit your words to 100 inclusive of the title

SO I CAN DANCE
fashion me a coat of song
let’s dance to the beat of weekend’s light
let’s dance
let’s dance
beat
beat
of weekend’s light
