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.

My Wish for You

Moonlight slides from the valley,
sparkling stars start to fade,
sunlight slips over saguaro and ocotillo,
birds begin to sing,
laughter and light,
magic and music,
surprise and sunlight.
May you have a spectacular day.

     Do you like to watch the sun rise or set?  I have friends in Kauai, Doug and Sandy McMaster  who watch the sun set every night from Hanalei pier. Doug plays slack key guitar.   They say it is their time to connect with the ancients.  A time to be thankful for all the good things in their life.  Since this is a time to be thankful, can you write a poem about the things you are thankful for?  Perhaps you'd like to make it a list poem.  Do have fun.  Or start your poem with a line like, "My favorite thanksgiving foods are:"  Oh, I'm getting hungry, just thinking of that.  Have fun.
