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, wayfarers and friends. I sometimes wonder whether it's us who choose poetry or is it poetry that eventually warms up to us. But what I do know is that once we begin our journey it never lets us down. 

If you have any thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express, then you have come to the right place. Please share a poem of your liking and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes. 

Remember to stop by tomorrow for our Toads in Tandem feature post. Susie and Angie have banded together to bring us a collaborative poem to celebrate the creative space of the Garden we call home.

Just read Paul's comment... and I hereby want to issue a warning.

DO NOT DRINK COFFEE WHILE READING MY POEM

For some of us with a weird sense of humor it might result in unintended coffee-spray.
