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.

As the sun dips red
with orange and pink, I stop
to breathe a thank you

     I have a friend who has the practice of stopping every evening just as the sun is setting to meditate on the blessings the day has provided.  This is something I want to try.  To say thank you for each day and for the people who have helped me along the way.  To say thank you for all the discoveries I have made each day.
     So this haiku is for you.  THANK YOU.  Thanks for stopping by, thanks for reading my poems and thank you for all the ideas and suggestions you have shared with me.  You are a blessing in my life.
    Have you noticed I don't really give titles to my haiku?  Haiku don't have titles, so I just label mine with the form.  Can you try writing a haiku about your sunrise or sun set?


  1. Giving thanks at sunset is a great idea.
    I know you aren't supposed to title haiku, but it can be a temptation!

    1. Giving thanks is a great habit to develop and any time. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Tabatha.

  2. Great idea! Thanks for sharing it and all your wonderful poetry!

    1. Hey, thanks for reading my poetry, Linda. I'm so glad that we are friends.
