Open Link Monday
Good day to all members and followers of the imaginary garden with real toads. We took our blog name from a line in the poem, Poetry, by Marianne Moore, where she contends that poetry is all about the imagination, but it deals with the real and sometimes ugly truths of life. Poets are the artistic mouth-pieces of their times, with some responsibility to tell it like it is.
Please link up a poem today which explores a social or humanist theme, or contains a message you feel is important enough to voice to the four winds. Alternatively, share a poem rich in imagination and artistic expression. As always, there is no restriction on when the poem was written - old poems or new are equally enjoyed.
We always like to read your comments, and encourage members to review and support the work of the poets who use this forum.
