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.

Poems In April - The Tuesday Platform


Welcome to the Tuesday Platform, your unprompted free-range day for sharing poems in the Imaginary Garden. Please look up from your smartphone and link up a poem. Then be sure to visit the offerings of our fellow writers.

And for those of you who would like some inspiration for today, I suggest you try your hand at Twitter Poetry i.e. to write a poem within twitter's text limit of 140 characters. On your mark, get set, go!

Hi Sanaa! Good to see you again. I feel so passionate about what I do that I decided to write on 'passion'. Happy Tuesday everyone!

I no longer tweet Sanaa but my poem is as brief as the 44 words quadrille - time is so hard to find sometimes! Off to buy some plants - back later to the garden to see what others have planted here

@Laura; It was a lovely quadrille!๐Ÿ’ž Thank you for joining us!☕

Hello all.....glad I made it here today. Some Tuesdays, I just cannot make it here. Look forward to visiting you all.

thanks for hosting Sanaa ~ and for suggesting the Tweet Poem - a wonderful break for the mind, after all these mad days! whee whoo!

I chose a 140 - made it easier on the brain.

Happy penning everyone and good luck in the march towards the finish line!

Frank J. Tassone said...

Evening, Toads! Thanks, Sanaa, for the inspiration. I post enough twitter-size haiku, so I went a different direction. See you all around the garden later!

Jim said...

Been a while since we've been asked for a Flash Poem. I like writing them. I'm on with 140. I like them but have been busy all day and had to write late.
