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.

In the cooling shade
we are eating from food trucks.
It's too hot for us.

     Do you eat food from food trucks?  What is your favorite food to eat?  This morning I ate a peach cobbler crepe from a food truck at the farmers market.  There is a food competition going on in Tucson to find the best food truck food.  So far an Indian food truck is winning.  Can you try writing a poem about food trucks today?  Have fun writing.

   Feed yourself on children's poetry.

    1. Haiku are always fun to write.

  2. Food trucks are more common today. This sounds like a fun contest. A sampling one. Yum!

    1. Actually, I think it is because things are so slow in town after mother's day that they try to have all sorts of food contests to get people out of their air conditioned homes. Our town has done one of the best pizza, the best bagel, best salsa. Has your town done those? Or maybe I just noticed them because I'm into food.
