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.

The Tuesday Platform



Toads! How can it already be half-way through the storied month of April?! Yikes, time flies when you are having fun writing like the wind. April blew in and we even had some more April snow-showers here, but now, mid-month, Spring is most definitely settling in and threatening to bloom. Which means I might make it after all. Yay!

So today is the Tuesday Platform, your unprompted free-range day of the week. Share with us, something old, something new, or your April 14 entry for NaPoWriMo. And then hop around to read what other pond-dwellers have shared. Enjoy!

April is flying by and leaving my head spinning... Or maybe is the daily poetry that has me drunk on words...

Happy Tuesday! ♥

Hi, I will be back to read later.. I wrote a little Sonnet, where I tried to work with an image I had in mind of shivering bluebells in the evening sun. Still a while to summer...

Here's today's poem, and I hope my intent is clear. If not, apologies all around, love, Mosk the Feminist

Hey, y'all, back again. Finally getting the hang of being functionally mute for the moment. Laryngitis has taken me out for the time being, and adjusting to not talking (let alone not singing) has been hell. Yikes, Amy

Acid reflux is making my face I must of over done caffeine trying to jump start my brain.

Gosh, I never even (consciously) noticed the picture, in wondering what the heck to write for this one. Then, this morning, a phrase popped into my head... I now see that the picture could almost illustrate that phrase (if we substitute arches of trees for a rainbow arc).

My poem comes from grief. I recently lost a cousin.
