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.

Open Link Monday

Calling all toads to the garden...






July began in great spirits last week with our Toads in Tandem Feature.  More wonderful collaborations are on their way, so don't forget to visit the garden on the in-between days.


The invitation is extended once again to all our friends and followers.  
If you are a regular Monday contributor, why not invite a friend to join you in sharing a poem with us today?  The rules are simple here, because there are none. We ask only that you enter into the spirit of RT by linking your original poetry, of whatever vintage you choose, and visiting the blogs of the other poets who have linked up with you.


Management reserves the right to remove inappropriate links.

Can someone let me know if any posts beyond number 4 are showing, because I can't see them, although they are recorded on the linky.

Kerry O'Connor said...

Never mind! I see them now.

Hello Monday! I'm back in my hermit crab apartment after a pleasant week with my folks eating and storytelling and swimming and boating. I wrote hard poems there during the night after my family went to bed. I bring an easier story-telling-time-with-folks prose poem today.

Hello everyone, this is my first monday post to this site. Its a vintage poem (I call it) I wrote last year. It needs editing but thought I put the original out there to see what you thought.

Peace!

Benjamin

Finished at last. I may do a little more revising...

DId I already say why there is a second entry here fr me today? I put my reasons somewhere and lost them, which I think is ok. Today I am inspired; today I am generalizing the beginnings and the power of questioning.
