Greetings to all our weekly visitors to the garden. It is always a pleasure to spend time here after a hectic start to the working week. I like to brew a cup of tea, kick off my shoes and relax in front of my computer, knowing I will have a ready supply of inspiring poems to read at my leisure. Thus an open invitation is extended to the community of blogging poets who would like to share a poem, new or old, with us today. There are no rules attached to the use of this particular forum, only the sincere hope that having left your link here, you will take the time to browse through other links and respond to the pieces with positive commentary.
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.
