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.

seeds from the broom sage
parachute across the air--
swimming pool litter.

   I have a couple of big bushes just outside my fenced yard.  The broom sage is shedding buckets of seeds.  They are pretty to watch as they float in the air, being carried to new homes.  I just wish they wouldn't land in the pool because they quickly clog the pool filter. Can you think of other things that are pretty but a nuisance?  This might make for a great topic for your poem today.  Have fun writing.

Instead of hurry, hurry, this is the time of year to slow down.  Have a cup of cocoa and count all the beautiful things in your life.
