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




Greetings to all poets who have joined us in the Imaginary Garden today. This is your opportunity to link up a poem of your choice, and to hang out with some of the smartest writers on the internet. Our long-standing member, Corey Rowley, has recently published a collection of his writing, under the auspices of ALL CAPS PUBLISHING - the brain child of Marian Kent. Check out his title, On Hunter's Wash: A Fractured Memoir, as well as many others listed on out Bookshelf Page.

I hope you will all have a wonderful Tuesday of composing and reading the work of other poets and friends.

Oh, if I'd heard the wonderful Billy Collins piece before I wrote, I might have been too intimidated to write at all! Feeling so unimaginative now. (*Wry smile.*)

Love the Billy Collins animated piece. Oh to have the technical 'know how' to animate poetry.Poetry of the future definitely ! Thanks for this !

You know when an idea takes hold and you have to wrestle with it and can't work on anything else until you do something with that idea? Which you know is probably a bad idea but you can't let it go anyway? I hate that. :)
