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.

Mourning doves cooing
repeats in soft, gentle waves
across the islands.
I've been thinking about kindness and being kind this morning. What is some small act of kindness you can perform for another today? Can you try writing a poem about it?
Today I'm volunteering at my library to help with their summer reading program. That is my act of kindness for the day. But like most of my volunteer work, I'll probably get more out of it, and receive more blessings than the work I put in. Life is like that.
Have fun writing your poem today.
'A 'ole lokomaika 'i i nele i ke pana 'i.
A Hawaiian proverb.
No kind deed has ever lacked its reward.
