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.

Hello... Love unconditional love...(but I tend to have reservations for mosquitoes and tics). Will get back to read later.

Hello dear friends and you - I wanted to leave a note for but couldn't figure how: here's the note: Loved your poem - it is sensual and grateful, two excellent qualities!

Something unusual for me, an old spiritual poem that I wrote, in the summer of 2014, during a severe bout of agoraphobia, that kept me, apartment-bound, for the entire summer.

Thank you for the comic Marian! It gave me a smile when I needed one, brought some light in. I linked up a bit of prose poetry on light that I wrote a while ago. Have a great day Toads! :-)

Oh, how I love Peanuts – and especially this one.

I so enjoyed the Peanuts comic! Today I'm linking a poem about something we all use and obey.

I hope everyone has a good week!

Hugs! Bekkie
