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.

Flight Of Write


To.  From. 

Up. Down. 

Of fancy.  Or narrative.  

Of birds.  Of imagination. 

Of the mind.  Wings.  Turbo-chargers.

This is your prompt for today.  Flight.  Flightless. 

Fight or.  With the greatest of ease.  (Or not.) 

I include some of my drawings.  Don’t feel compelled to use them, but if you do, please give credit to Karin Gustafson.

Just enjoy the writing of your own and your fellow travelers/passengers/aviators.  

(PPS -  sorry I have been so absent.  An overwhelming time.)

Thank you for the art K! I thought I'd go with one pic, then another spoke up. Hope you are feeling on the up and up (pun intended)

Oh I love the art work, Karin, and I have some ideas about one of your wonderful drawings....sorry I havent been here much. I am distracted by beach and summer, and am not writing much or well. I figure in bad weather I will work harder, lol. We live in hope.

Problems with my intent Wi-Fi connection, should be solved by Monday. So says my ISP. So using phone data.

Here is a haiku, I would team up with image #1

a mosquito's song -
flight into nothingness from
the end of of a slap

Much love...
