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.

The hole
I dig
never seems
deep enough
to find
the greatest

   Do you ever feel like your writing is just going through the motions?  Lately, I have been feeling like that--there must be something more important I can say with my words, something more organized.  This morning I had the delightful time of getting into my writing for a longer period.  It felt so good.  I feel like there is something just below the surface waiting for me to discover.  So, I'm going back to my notebook.  I hope you have a great weekend and a happy Valentine's Day.
  What are you writing today?

Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.  Eleanor Roosevelt


  1. Some days are definitely better writing days than others, Joy. Happy Valentine's Day to you. Hope you continue to find more time to write.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I'm actually cheating. I'm learning to ignore all those boxes I have yet to empty. Writing is much more fun than unpacking.

  2. It's nice that things have settled down enough after your move to give you time to write. I hope our move gets finished someday and I can find time to write. This is turning into the longest move in the history of the world. (sigh)

    1. Well, thank you for finding time to leave me a comment to encourage me. I'm going to empty two more boxes today, but first I want to write.
