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.

From my point of view
a person only loses
if they stop taking the next
leap of faith.

    Do you know that riddle about where is the place you'll find your glasses?  The answer is the last place that you look for them.  Once you find your glasses, they are no longer lost.  Lots of things in life are like that.  As long as you keep working toward your goal, eventually you will reach that goal.  I love writing acrostic poems.  I always love where the words take me.  Here is your challenge for today--find a dictionary.  Open the book at a random page and close your eyes.  Point your finger and put it down on the page.  What word did your finger pick?  Read the definition for your word.  Can you write an acrostic poem for your word?  Have fun.  I do love May. It is a special month for me.

  1. Joy,
    I like that you included a dictionary with this poetry writing. It's not as commonly used as it once was, due to Spellcheck and Google. Thanks to you, it has the place of honor today.
