The Tuesday Platform

Greetings to all toads, poets and wayfarers! This is Kerry, standing in for Anmol who is currently moving to a home in a new city. He will be back in the Garden in July. I am sharing a recent illustration I did for a poem from my Skylover Collection, called Arms of Orion. I have been keeping myself occupied this way during my winter vacation. Always good to take time out for creativity!

Arms of Orion: Self Portrait
Kerry O'Connor
The poem can be read by following the linky to Skylover or on Instagram, where many of our fellow toads are to be found. Do pay a visit to their pages, where a whole lot of magic abounds!

It has been a while since I hosted the Tuesday Platform, so I am looking forward to a wonderful selection of poems today.
My Skylover post is on a non-comment blog, so I invite you to simply read and reflect.

Thank you for hosting us today, Kerry! ❤️ I am sharing an older poem today which I wrote during April for Anmol’s prompt 😊 where he asked us to reimagine myths and come up with our own. Happy Tuesday! ❤️

I haven't moved the last two hours, I woke up early and couldn't sleep. Early, very. So I ginned up an "early: write.
Thank you, Kerry, for hosting. I'll read your Skylover, I hope to learn, you are my main teacher.

If you read early, then since I took my father bit out and replaced with expanded trip to grandmother's house to wash our clothes in her machine. We were very poor...

I liked Kerry's "Sonnet 41". I used to ponder going back but no more after sitting beside my ex for granddaughter's looong wedding.

YAY! It's Kerry hosting! I love your drawing, Kerry. It is wonderful. I shared, not a poem, but a wonderful adventure I had on Friday, so everyone can meet a couple who are living their dream in a beautiful way. Enjoy!

Thank you everyone, for all the great poems. Thanks, Jim, for reading a few of my poems on Skylover. That is kind of you.

Good Morning All! Kerry I so enjoy your art work and your words! Adding one I wrote for the dVerse prompt, and it includes a reading of the poem.

Kerry, I so loved your poem... if there is anything I think is unexplored is sci-fi poetry ... I only know of Aniara, and that is not available in English any longer.

I'm coming a bit late to this. Have spent the last couple of days resurrecting my 'verse portraits' blog, which basically meant creating and designing a new one. So I share my first new poem posted there.

Wonderful drawing, Kerry (and I am very fond of Orion).

I do have an Instagram account and even a few followers – which must be very disappointing for them as I haven't posted anything yet. I started it to look at other people's posts, but have done little of that either, so far. I think it's time I had a good look around and then plunged in!
