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

Welcome to the Imaginary Garden ...

I can't help but be filled with the joys of Spring, dear friends, even though this means that our Northern Hemisphere toads may be anticipating the cold months that lie ahead. Change is definitely in the air!

My customary Monday welcome is extended to all visitors to the garden, old and new. I encourage our regulars to invite a friend to join us in sharing and reading poetry. This is an opportunity to make new connections and create bonds between writers of poetry. I saw this cartoon on a blog last week, and though it made me laugh, I really hope it is not true of those who call themselves toads.

hello to all the toads..it's my first time here. I shared a poem which reminds me autumn is nearing - it's just that... I love rain. :)

Happy Spring, Kerry. I posted yesterday's poem again. It's still hot here, but also Labor Day which often marks the end of summer. School begins.

Well, I'm thickheaded this morning and misunderstood the prompt - forgive me. I'll put up a spring poem. If you want to delete the other one, moderator, that will be fine with me.

Debi Swim said...

My spring poem, she says sheepishly.

Marian said...

Debi, there are no restrictions or guidelines for Monday's Open Link here in the Garden. poems on any subject are welcome! thank you for sharing your writing with us. :)

Debi Swim said...

Thanks Marian. I didn't know - I thought maybe the first part of the post was a prompt. : )

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I seldom have anything for OLM, but I have one today, thanks to Kerry.

I see Lindy sneaked into my ID line again (#23). That's because Open Link always follows Pet Pride, where I let her share the byline, or give her top billing. But don't worry, she won't dig in the garden, she's sound asleep.

I enjoyed visiting the garden today, and all of the offerings of the generous toads.

Hey Kerry - so wonderful to think of you getting ready for Spring! A beautiful late summer day here raining and sun, though now it's pouring and I think fall will be coming with the rain. k.

Your picture is cheery, Kerry. You know that. You know too how true the cartoon is.

Thank you for both.
