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.

So many airplanes
in the air
flying us from here
to who knows where.

So many decisions
we have to make
like where to sit 
and what to take.

Flying is stressful,
I have to laugh.
I think I'd rather
stay home for a bath.

   This is crazy.  My husband and I are flying back to Kauai next week.  So today he told me that the seat assignments had gotten changed.  He gave me elaborate instructions on how to change my seat assignments to match his so we could sit together.  He had three different seat assignments.  He is flying Tucson to Phoenix, Phoenix to San Diego, San Diego to Lihue.
   But when I logged on to the airline web site to check on my seat assignment; I only had two seats assigned.  I am flying Tucson to Los Angeles, Los Angeles to Lihue.  I'm going to feel Presidential with us flying on separate flights just in case there is a problem with either flight. Of course, I get in an hour before he does, but I won't get a second free checked bag which my frequent flyer husband gets and I get when I travel with him.  Airlines and travel is so complicated.  Where was the last place you travelled to?  How did you go?  By plane, car, bus, or train?  Can you try writing a travel poem today?  Have fun writing.

   Let's get this show on the road.


  1. I loved your preference of taking a bath over flying. Most kids would probably choose flight over a bath. ;)

    1. Thanks, Linda. I've been absolutely flummoxed this week with the variability of an internet connection. I just finally gave up and post when I can.
      What happens if you have a flying bath tub?
