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...

Book Quotes Pencils
Jane Austen


Greetings to all poets, wayfarers and friends. The floor is open; the platform is yours! Please share a poem of your choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes.

Remember to stop by tomorrow for our Toads in Tandem feature post. Karin and Björn have banded together to bring us a collaborative poem to celebrate the creativity of our Garden environment.

am a late dreamer and seemingly an early riser on the link up - off the the gym though so back later to read what is in today's garden

I always love writing for the platform!💖 It gives me a chance to explore and observe where my muse chooses to take me. Sharing my poem 'Of idle thoughts and truer dreams.' Happy Tuesday, everybody!💖

Trying to get back into writing weekly with all of my friends. My offering is a write I did on Monday but just got around posting today.

I hope everyone is good and have a nice rest of your week. Can't wait to read your poems it's been awhile.

Big hug!

Not one toad came to read my poem this time. That kind of hurt my feelings I only posted a day late.
