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!




There is one rule for The Tuesday Platform: SHARE.

Share a poem with us.
Share some time reading poems this week.
Share your thoughts when moved to do so.

(Higher criticism optional.)

Good morning, friends. Mine is a memorial poem for a dear friend who passed away a few weeks back. Just this morning I received the shocking news about another close friend dying in the night. Too much, too much. Overwhelming. Love to each and every one of you!! xoxxoxo M.

God grant me the serenity to accept the close reading I can't Bronx cheer, the courage to read between their lines and the wisdom to not give a crap.
