Open Link Monday

Welcome to the Imaginary Garden...

“The days aren't discarded or collected, they are bees
that burned with sweetness or maddened
the sting: the struggle continues,
the journeys go and come between honey and pain."
Pablo Neruda, Still Another Day

Good day to all our followers and weekly visitors to the garden. I hope this Monday has dawned brightly in your part of the world. How fortunate we are to have the days of a new week ahead of us, hopefully in which to collect honey, rather than suffer any stings.
By now, you all know the drill of our open link: share a poem of your choice, spare a few minutes to visit the blogs of others and, most importantly, enjoy this gift of poetry in the company of friends.


  1. Looking forward to seeing how your garden grows this Monday.:-)

  2. Just discovered Grace's wonderful prompt and had a little goat it.
    Happy Summer week; not too hot, not too cold I hope.

  3. So sorry about the 'goat', hope it doesn't eat all the flowers in the garden. I need to cut my fingernails :-)

  4. Hi Kerry, Good Morning (I should have said that last night, I went to bed at midnight plus here and you had posted. But I would have been first again.)
    I like your picture find, the bees do stay busy don't they. I had a 'goat' Grace's prompt post in the afternoon yesterday and so I'm saying thank you for letting me link it here also.

  5. Happy Monday!! Hope it is a great week for all!

  6. Happy Monday!! Hope it is a great week for all!

  7. Good week to all ~ M

  8. hello friends!
    i'm in such a funk i ain't got nothin' to share, but i'm saying hello anyway, & will make my way around to visit all of you. here's to a great week all around!

  9. I'm late to the garden party-but I will drop by and visit! My house is loud with teenagers. I am enjoying them-I know I will fear the silence of autumn.

  10. I will be back this evening to visit - I actually have time on my hands tonight! Woo hoo.

  11. I so had to play in your garden today! Can't wait to see the other folks plants too!
