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 ~ Poeming

WELCOME to the Tuesday Platform:

A Sort Of A Song - Poem by William Carlos Williams
Let the snake wait under
his weed
and the writing
be of words, slow and quick, sharp
to strike, quiet to wait,
sleepless.
-- through metaphor to reconcile
the people and the stones.
Compose. (No ideas
but in things) Invent!
Saxifrage is my flower that splits
the rocks. 

So here's your chance to showcase ONE poem of your choice - unprompted at Toads.
Choose as you wish.
Link up to your specific blog post in Mr. Linky.
Take some time to wander, read and comment on what fellow Toads and Travelers have shared. 

Happy Tuesday.

Maybe I should clarify - "unprompted at Toads" means we're not offering any particular direction, but you can of course, write or share a poem you may have written for another place/site/prompt .... just in case anyone is having a snit fit .... or is worried ...

happy poeming people :)
