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.

When I'm alone and scared
in the middle of the night,
all I need to do is grab
my trusty flash light.

    Do you have a flash light?  What do you use your flash light for?  Can you write a list poem about the uses for your flash light?  Have fun writing


  1. Flashlight

    Tease the cat by flicking it against the living room wall
    Hunt in purse or backpack
    Use 2 & be a pretend owl outside at nite
    Dot - Dash- Dot code
    Pretend sparkler
    Signal a detour to the midnite fridge

    1. Jan, excellent list. I love the last one. What fun to signal your turns inside. I like your poem.

  2. Joy,
    I am a mini-flashlight fan. I buy too many & always give them as undera ppreciated gifts in my family. But that way, I tend to get them back. My favorites are the tiny ones for key chains.
    Luv the idea of your poem.

    1. My favorite ones are the pen-light combos so I can write in the dark.

  3. Good job babe... Ily cloey

  4. Joy,
    Lately, I've been using a flashlight to distinguish one pill from another when removing one from a pillbox. Unbelievable how much some meds look alike. Who would have thought?

    1. Hadn't thought about that, Linda. I'm glad you're keeping the meds separated. I wouldn't want you to get the wrong pills.
