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.

This definitely had the muse all excited, but I'm afraid the tool she used to get the job done (aka me) thought it hard to find words today. Great prompt!

Hey CC, we wrote about the same theme ~

I will be out doing errands for my son's wedding next month ~ I will be back later to read and return your visits ~

Happy Saturday ~

This was a fun prompt, Grace. Doesn't quite make me want to search for Bruce Jennings likings in my soul, but almost.
I loved it (I wore PINK in the old days, dress up to church even.)
