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

It’s Tuesday! C’mon in, the platform is yours. We Toads invite you (yes, you!) to share your poetry in the Garden.

Long or short, old or new, it’s up to you. Remember that links in the Garden do not expire, so feel free to link up on Wednesday or later in the week. And please do take some time during the week to read the work of other participants. We all value feedback on our work from other writers; it is how we grow. Like this Warhol butterfly!

We look forward to reading your poems.

Good Morning Toads! I've returned from a week's journey in which I didn't do any writing, but some reading and lots of outdoor exploring. I'm linking up a poem that wrote just before I left for the trip, it seems appropriate for the moment since so much of my summertime is spent in or beside water. :-)

It's beautiful, in the true sense of the word. As for poem-wise, not sure, what it will be, yet. My brain is getting used to having A/C, after a brutal week of 28+ C temperatures, in Toronto.

How beautiful is that butterfly! But my poem is wintry. :-)
