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

Welcome to the Imaginary Garden...





Greetings to all poets, toads, friends. Thank you for dropping in to hang out for a while in our poetic environs.. a small retreat from the pressures of that thing called 'the working day' or 'the rest of the world'.

Please link up a poem of your choice today, and enjoy the offerings of our fellow poets who have come here to share their work.
