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, a place for sharing poetry. 




I found this recitation by Steve Earle a refreshing and hopeful reflection on how change is inevitable, and that we will survive and even thrive. Hope you like it, too. Please link up a poem today, old or new. We want to read it!

FASHION ME YOUR WORDS TO FOLD ~ Ergo

FASHION ME YOUR WORDS TO FOLD ~ (An Identity) Ergo...
[images from google dot com And pinterest]


Today we are revisiting [or visiting]
Peanuts a syndicated daily and Sunday American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000, continuing in reruns afterward...with philosophical, psychological, and sociological overtones... the characters' interactions form a tangle of relationships.

THE CHALLENGE:
Peruse the Peanuts cartoons shown [click for larger views], ponder them in a fresh new light, studying each character, until, you think you have found yourself in one of them, OR the nearest possiblity of yourself, at the time of your reading here at Toads.

IF by chance YOU are not there, choose a cartoon you know, which you think defines you, now.

Write a new poem, based on your rediscovery of self, accordingly. Add an image of the cartoon you have choosen for your inspiration. If you are using a cartoon that is not listed. Give us a link to it's source and tell us a tiny something in a note about it.

Limit your words to NOT MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED.

Have fun, looking forward to reading some great writes
