The Tuesday Platform

Welcome to the Imaginary Garden...



Greetings to all poets, wayfarers and friends. I have been thinking a lot about the world lately, and how hatred and indifference seem to have spread its wings. The other day, there was a girl whom I passed by on the street, who looked forlorn and down in the dumps. I flashed her a smile and felt a sense of contentment as her face lit up. The world needs love and kindness and we should try to contribute in whichever way that we can. 

If you have any thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express, then you have come to the right place. Please share a poem of your choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes. 

Remember to stop by tomorrow for our Toads in Tandem feature post. Isadora and Kim have banded together to bring us a collaborative poem to celebrate the creativity of our Garden environment.

  1. I was going to link up a different poem today, Sanaa, but when I read your intro, about hatred and indifference seeming to have spread their wings, and your smile hitting the spot, I thought I'd contribute to the love and kindness needed in the world.

  6. Sharing a sonnet I wrote a week or so ago. I am back at work, full steam ahead until December, so my various voices may fall silent.

    Thanks for being such a generous host, Sanaa. Your smile always brightens up my day.

  9. Happy sunny October morning, friends. I am sharing a poem I wrote for a friend who recently died. I wrote it for him two years ago and he read it, which I am happy about. Paul , Shay and Audrey have already read it. He was an amazing being, who walked his earth walk with grace. Nice to remember him this sunny morning.

  11. Thanks so much, Sanaa. Kerry, I cant find your sonnet. Checked both your sites. What is its title, please? I LOVE "Blindness Serves", and resonate with it very much.

  12. Hi everyone! I've just one to reflect how we're imprisoned by our own foibles. A sad state.
