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 friends, followers, poets. If you have poetry to share in a creative environment, then you are in the right place.  I am sharing this incredible short movie (15 minutes). It fills me with joy to see the art of story-telling is flourishing - there is so much to inspired in this one.

Please link up a poem of your choice (old or new, prompted or not) and take some time to read and enjoy the wealth of poetry this site is home to.

After 2 days off, from writing anything, it feels good, to be back, at it. As Canada, recovers from its unofficial start to Summer, with the Victoria Day long weekend (or more popularly called, "2-4 weekend", for the case of 24 beer (can or bottle, your choice). Have posted an important poem, to me, and the trans-community.

Hello. I love the little movie – and what a sweet coincidence that I'm linking to a moon poem today. :-)

Jim said...

Thanks for the movie. A "Short". I enjoyed writing this evening, had a busy day. Busier tomorrow.

Hello Toads! I'm linking to a poem I wrote today for Poets United about picnics.

I'm excited to say my poetry and photos are going to be featured on Poets United in the near future! I have never been featured before and am very excited!

I hope everyone is having a nice week! I'll be around to read.

Hugs! Bekkie

Hello Toads friends. Thank you for all the welcoming messages I've received this last week! I am currently on a family vacation in California, so no new writing this week--but I'm linking up a poem on the moon and music, two subjects that never fail to inspire.
