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 friends, poets and story-tellers!

So many awards ceremonies have been hosted this year, culminating with the Academy Awards last Sunday and it got me thinking about the enduring role of storytellers in society. As poets, we are a part of the oral and written tradition, adding our voices to the age. Sometimes it may feel like our words are a mere drop in the ocean of time, but they are part of a great pattern. Let us celebrate being a part of the story.

Please share a poem of your choice. No Rules. No Prompt. No Expiration Date.

Ash Wednesday gave me food for thought and fasting thoughts of food [apologies for seemingly not visiting but struggling to comment with Wordpress ID on all bloggers blogs]
