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.

quiet creature visits
perhaps it's a wasp
need Hawaiian insect guide

    Isn't this wasp beautiful?  The yellow color is wonderful. The wings are actually lacy clear.  But, I have no idea what kind of bug it is and I'm going to have to do some research.  Isn't that part of the fun of moving to a new place?  You get to see all sorts of new flora and fauna.
   Can you spend some time observing nature today to write your own haiku? Have fun writing.


  1. I hope Santa knows where to find one. Merry Christmas! Enjoy every minute in your new home!

    1. I've got the flower and bird books for Hawaii, now I have to see if I can find an insect one. Wonder if I need a rock and shell book? I'll keep you posted.

  2. So happy to read a poem from Hawaii, Joy. Merry Christmas! Or - Mele Kalikimaka!

    1. Linda, I loved your Christmas poem I read on Jone Mac's blog and seeing Robyn Hood Black's etsy art was great. You are a blessing to poets everywhere.
