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



"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." (Ray Bradbury)

 
Photos by Marian Kent

On this and every Tuesday in the Imaginary Garden, the rules are simple: Share a poem with us, and visit others during the week.

Share * Read * Comment * Enjoy

Those are some very pretty flowers, pretty photos. I like Sunflowers, we had a lot in Nebraska and South Dakota, both wild and raised for crops. They still do.
