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.

April 12 - Costa Rica Photos



Costa Rica is the home of my daughter's dear friend, Eva, who started out as a pen pal through a High School English class assignment about seven years ago.  My daughter traveled there last year and stayed with Eva's family and had the time of her life.  I asked Eva to send me photos of her beautiful country and she is thrilled to supply these for our poetry prompt for day 12 of NaPoWriMo 2018.  Her friend took them and we have permission to use them.

The poems can be about Costa Rica but do not have to be.  They are just a jumping off point.  You are invited to write more than one poem.  I prefer a new one, however, will allow a reworked poem - it being 30 poems in 30 days I'm willing to give everyone a little bit of a break.

You know the drill - link up and visit your fellow poets.

Yes, the photos are wonderful. The macaws inspired me by reminding me vividly of another bird close to home, and a friend's facebook post was a serendipitous completion of the idea.

Hi kids, am heading to the farm for a few days. But I will have my tablet with me , so will keep up as best I can. I didnt write to the prompt today but did (tehcnically) write a (sort of) poem, as am heading out the door. We had a sad event in Canada on Friday - the country is still reeling. I wrote to acknowledge that.
