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.

Do you ever wonder
how moonlight
halos your hair?

How stars
twinkle and glitter
in the quarter moon air?

Do you believe rainbows
come at the 
best of times?

And poems
sometimes come
all set in rhymes?

These are days
I feel I am
a lucky one

to see another
day with 
a rising sun.

     What do you wonder about?  What do you think about when you look at the moon or the stars?  can you write a poem about that today?

     I have a special treat today.  My friend Cory Corrado is a brilliant photographer and poet.  She has designed a beautiful, awe inspiring book, NATURE SMILES, using both of her skills.  She has given me permission to share the link to her book with you.


Sorry, you may have to cut and paste to get there, but I guarantee it is worth the effort.   I hope you enjoy her book as much as I do.      


  1. Wonder of wonders...what a great treat! I love the sweet book. Thanks to your friend, Corey, and to you, Joy.

  2. Yes, Nature Smiles left me smiling all day. I'm so glad you liked it and I could share it with you. I'll pass your message on to Cory.
    Thank you.
