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 all poets, wanderers, those who have lost and found their way...

Do you have thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express? You have come to the right place. It is the day you get to choose, your theme and intention in writing. Please link up your poem, old or new, and hang around with some of the finest poets in the blogosphere.

Happy Tuesday shatter to all! The reverse of Cohen's sentiment, I fear, may be just as true.

Marcoantonio Arellano said...

I have pulled an Instructional out of its grave. It wanted to come out and play again.

How nice to have the Tuesday Platform for those poems which just appear, unprompted. 'Some of the finest poets in the blogosphere' is certainly true, and what an honour and pleasure to be in your company.

Timoteo said...

Hello all! Great to see such a wonderful turn-out today. Alas, I still await the reigniting of my own poetic thoughts... Just ashes to show.

the magical and mystical Cohen - what a treasure - he is missed

great source of inspiration for this day's ideas - it certainly offered me ideas in swirling fashion - from which I picked and plucked - creating an impression|collage in words

thanks for the prompt :)
