    Thanks, Bri. I did like your suggestion on the placement of the comma break and I've edited the piece accordingly. I guess the spawning comes from the muggy atmosphere surrounding the drowning muse, just wasn't wet enough to produce. A kind of a metaphor for how we all waste time at the desk trying to come up with ideas when we would profit from being out and among mankind.

  • POEM: A C T C - 2014/10 Entries - Poemhunter Poems by Brian Johnston (11/9/2014 5:59:00 AM)

    Lovely pieces one and all investigating the Heart of Imagination.

    Re: Darlene piece. As a retired teacher of young children, I often wonder what happens to their imaginations over time. There is far too much emphasis on test scores in today's schools - imagination is beyond testing. Love the summary last verse ending her piece with such clarity. My vote goes for The Heart of Imagination by Darlene Walsh.

    RE: Abekah's piece. I think I would agree with you that words are the anchor which aid memory of our thoughts and imagination. Without memory, where would imagination, communicating our minds with others builds our database in our brain. I think of my 10 month old grandson watching the development of his mind and I am amazed at the complexity of it all. It is truly a miracle of God. Enjoyed your thoughts, Abekah.

    RE: Bri's piece. Well-done explanation of the question - are words the heart of imagination? I clearly understand your point, words are more the heart of communication. Is that why we forget dreams so quickly because there are no words to record the event in our mind. As for the ice cream, I always start with my mouth but not to talk, that would be a waste of my time and yours. I have wondered how God created words and what language Adam and Eve spoke. Great writing, Bri, many thinks to consider here.

    RE: Brian's piece. I was most impressed with your last lines, God spoke the world into being, didn't He? But I'm still wondering with Bri about the school he held for teaching Adam and Eve the rudiments of language. Enjoyed your trip through the sights, smells and sounds of the imagination. A worthy piece, indeed.

    RE: It is Poetry's piece. As with most free verse, I get lost. But perhaps you have proven your point well, Free verse is usually very open-ended and interpretations run wild at times. Kinda reminds me of Ma, Look what they've done to my song. Your piece brings to mind also of testimony of witnesses to a crime scene, sometimes conflicting evidence is given which makes the jury wonder if the parties are describing the same event.

    RE: Diane's piece, Again I am out in left field playing in the sand. You have given us many examples to consider and to spark our imaginations; and your repetition is mark of good poetry (IMHO) . The most significant part of your piece to me is found in the title: Chinese Whispers, the introduction of that idea that words that are totally foreign do nothing for one's imagination.

  • POEM: Worthy To Be First by Garrett Westcott (2/24/2014 12:19:00 PM)

    Another great piece entered today, Garrett. Just browsing through and entering a few poems of my own...I don't use this site very much because it is so big and largely unspiritual. Glad to have found a person willing to post his belief and trust in Jesus.
