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.

Wordy Thursday with Wild Woman : MUST LOVE DOGS


Write a poem of tribute to or about  a dog you have loved – and/or still love. Tell us about him or her, and the gifts he or she brought into your life. Is there a story that will tell us who your dog was or is?

"Seize the day!"
Pup-cakes for their birthdays!

If you are a cat person, introduce us to your cat.

And if you have never known or loved a dog or cat up close and personal, write a poem about your favourite animal, whether domesticated or wild. 

Let's look at the world through the kind, intelligent, loving eyes of animals today.

The Tuesday Platform

“In the sky there are always answers and explanations for everything: every pain, every suffering, joy and confusion.” ― Ishmael Beah

There is something about the sky that stirs my heart, my soul and my muse from time to time. Greetings poets, wayfarers and friends. It's Ramadan in my part of the world and writing especially these days offers me a chance to truly unwind. 

If you have any thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express, then you have come to the right place. Please share a poem of your choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes. We look forward to reading you and hope you have a wonderful day ahead.
