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.

Sunday Mini Challenge - Dolls Revisited

Artist: Rachel Pentergrass
Welcome to round two of "Dolls".   I, Margaret, want to thank my daughter and her fellow classmates for allowing us to use these artistic creations.  The first series was showcased last month HERE and I'm hoping for poetic inspiration to strike again.

Please help yourself to more than one image and know that you are invited to use these dolls as inspiration for the whole week.  Please remember to link back here, though.

When this second series of doll poems are done I am going to forward all the poems to my daughter to share with the students themselves.

Artist:  Lily Higgins
Artist: Austin Cassie
Artist: Isabelle Rolles
Artist:  Becca Nenow
Artist: Elizabet Puksto
Artist:  Zoe Swindell
Please acknowledge the name of the artist if you upload an image to your blog. The Sunday Challenge is posted on Saturday at noon CST to allow extra time for the form challenge.  Please provide a link on your blog back to Real Toads.  We stipulate that only poems written for this challenge may be added to the Mr Linky.  Management reserves the right to remove unrelated links, but invites you to share a poem of your choice on Open Link Monday.

This writing made me happy, though I wish I had seen her partner join her. I know she would make room and brighten up with pleasure! Thank you again for these wonders of creation. I would love to meet the students hosting a gallery of their creations. These blow my mind, all of them.

Late, and didn't think I could write anything, but these dolls have a way of pulling words out of the ether. Thanks Margaret, and to all the students who shared, for allowing us to write to these amazing pieces of art.
