This is my playground for poetry written for children with ideas and inspiration for writing your own poems. Come on in. Sit for a spell, have a cup of words to swirl around and make your own cup of poetry. I'm so glad you are here. I hope you'll find the Kingdom of Poetry a fun place to be.

a cattle egret
flies across purple skylight
a journal page turns

    Happy Sunday.  Did your clock fall back for day-light savings time last night?  Did you get an extra hour of sleep?  It is something we all need. 
    I'm in a State that doesn't observe day-ling savings.  This morning when I woke up the skies were just becoming light and I was treated to the sight of a white long-legged bird flying past.  Today starts a new day, what will you write in your journal?  Can you try writing your own haiku today?  I used the traditional American 5-7-5 pattern for mine, what will you use? 


  1. Love your haiku, Joy! I use the 5-7-5 format, too. Yes, I got an extra hour of sleep today, but it still wasn't enough! = )

    1. I hope you are slowly adjusting to the time change Becky. Now there is a great topic for a poem. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. This is lovely, Joy. I'd love to see an egret flying outside my window-what a surprise it would be!
