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.

modern haiku

A gravel drive
old wooden fence
the open red gate

   I think I need more practice on painting gravel drives.  I did have fun painting this. Which is the whole point, isn't it?

  Your poetry challenge for today is to try writing your own modern haiku.  And if you choose to illustrate your poem, I hope you have fun.

  Happy Sunday.


  1. I think both the painting and the poem are lovely. Thanks.

    1. I'm just glad that I'm getting things more under control so I have time to play with my water colors. Thanks, Rosi. Do you like to paint?

  2. Joy,
    I have taken one Haiku walk with Robyn Black in Georgia. What fun! Thanks for reminding me of that. I'm so glad you're having fun with your art and poetry. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Lucky you to share haiku time with Robyn Hood Black. She is very good at writing haiku.
