Definition

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

“In the sky there are always answers and explanations for everything: every pain, every suffering, joy and confusion.” ― Ishmael Beah


There is something about the sky that stirs my heart, my soul and my muse from time to time. Greetings poets, wayfarers and friends. It's Ramadan in my part of the world and writing especially these days offers me a chance to truly unwind. 

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 choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes. We look forward to reading you and hope you have a wonderful day ahead.

Me too added mine today. I'm always late to the tea party! (sits down on a lily pad to sip) Couldn't resist because Sanaa said sky and I had a poem with a sky pic I love -- ok, not a real sky because it's in Second Life and reflected at that as I am looking upwards through the water. Still I love skies wherever I am (and in whatever world, lol)
