A poetry prompt? On Christmas Day? Ain't nobody got time for that!
Let's keep it short and sweet. Today, we're writing ho ho hoku: 5-7-5 syllables of happy holiday (or, bah humbug!) 'ku for your fellow Toads. Do as many as you like; there's no word count. Just have some fun. Post whenever you get a chance. No one shall receive a lump of coal for being late.
Merry Christmas, Toads!
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.
