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

"The Summer looks out from her brazen tower, through the flashing bars of July." - Francis Thompson


There is a slight chill in the air these days here in Kuala Lumpur and the sky in the evenings is a beautiful shade of gold and salmon pink! Greetings poets, wayfarers and friends. It's the beginning of July and nature is smiling at me today. Come let us share some poetry and enjoy the company of our fellow writers here in the garden.

SHARE * READ * COMMENT * ENJOY

I shall imagine that slight chill, and tempt it to fly this way--we are sizzling in NYC.

Love that view!

I just managed to write a little bit of whimsy before I go back to marking, The deadline was last night but I still have some to go. I have to get it done - I need to clean the house and eventually get out in the sunshine!

@Romana... not so much interest for me... but it's a bit silent outside at the moment.

Romana Iorga said...

@Sanaa, thank you for having me!

@Bjรถrn, don't blame ya! It's a pretty big deal in our household, though... we have a parent-teacher conference in 20 min and my husband says this is not a good time to meet our son's teacher. ๐Ÿ˜Š
