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.

Marian, when I saw your Fork in the Road" cartoon I had to post these, a couple of early fun posts. , I should have annotated the second. I "officially" classified it as a poem. Thanks for the encouragement.

Oh yes, Adi, my Beagle dog, and I were an acredited 'Pet Therapy ' team. We visited an assisted living home weekly, spending most of our time visiting in the Alzheimer's wing. Those residents loved Adi, she loved them. Adi died at age 16 in 2013.

Weird, the things, we think of, when we have a lot of time, on our hands. Such is the case, in 2008, during my first year of writing poetry. Talk about high trauma, with valley girl talk, during the late 1980s.

Combined the last two prompts - not really hard core political - I kind of slid under the "high" bar that Brendan challenged us to - I will be a few days reading and commenting - but I will get around to it.
