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, and a very Happy Thanksgiving to those who will be celebrating this week. I am thankful to be able to come to this little place we call our own each week, to share in the gift of words, ideas and friendships across the bounds of time and space. Please link up a poem of your choice and keep the flame alive.

Good day, Kerry, and Toads and Guests. Happy Thangsgiving.
I'm late for yesterday and early for today. I am about to shut down, in bed now using my laptop. I posted this one in 2014, running late then and didn't have many readers. It was for your, Kerry, 'Animals, Second Person' prompt. I linked to it here and will update the post with reference to this one in the morning using my computer.

Hello and happy Thanksgiving for you all... I'm glad I'm not a turkey this week.

Hello Kerry, Jim and Bjorn! Happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate! I wouldn't like to be a turkey this week either, Bjorn! I'd much rather be a contented cat sitting on my owner's lap.

Kerry, just a note to let you know how lovely and savory are your collected poems. A balm. Thank you.

I enjoyed reading poems earlier this holiday week -- and am late adding my own Thanksgiving poem, but here it is! I hope all the American poets here have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. :-)
