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.

Thank you for the prompt Marian. The quality of her voice hit me most. and the dearth of older people at the wedding. such a fantastic mix of joy and sadness. I hope you all like my offering.

oh and in other news, i'm featured on NaPoWriMo today! http://www.napowrimo.net/day-fourteen-5/ Holy Moley! Thank you all for being such an inspiration!

Thank you for introducing me to Carla Morrison, Marian!

I had not heard of Carla either. Wikipedia has a shortish blurb of her life, it was interesting. This time though I decided to write on the NaPoWriMo prompt, the "wobbly table." I did link to the Toads though, and named you, Marian, as host today.

Thanks Marian. Chilled toons for the morning is good with me. Muse took this away from me though.

Loved the music video! I'm a little behind, trying to catch up and working on something a little more battle weary but I hope to come back to this prompt.

Thanks, Marian.

much love...

Hi, friends. I'm going to be away all day but will be around to read everyone's entries, probably tomorrow. Sorry about that. Enjoy the day! Today it is finally spring-like here in Massachusetts, but it supposed to turn cold and icy tomorrow. Must soak in sunshine while possible. Love to you all, xoxo

I was another who did need an introduction to Carla. Thanks for that. And the prompt put me in mind of a recent family occasion.

Er...I never heard of her either. I like the way she rolls her R's.

What a beautiful video. I am at the farm, no computer, but will give this a whirl later. Thanks, Marian.

What a beautiful song and video, Marian. It gave me goosebumps :-) Thank you.

Thank you for the prompt Marian. Although I find music prompts annoying as I feel the music manipulates the feelings behind the poem and I don't speak Spanish not have I ever heard of the artist. I cut the sound off after a minute and enjoyed the video immensely.

Margaret, I'm sorry for not reading or commenting on your poem but I couldn't access it for some reason.

Marian said...

I'm late in reading these poems but am loving them. Thank you all for playing.

Same here, Margaret, no access to your blog. Say it isn't so!
