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.

What's Your Story, Morning Glory

Blue Morning Glories
sway on their vine,
dance in the wind,
looking divine.

In the morning
droplets of dew
rest on their petals,
bluer than blue.

Turning their faces
toward the sun,
bright in the morning
then evening they're done.

     Here is a quick challenge.  See how many different kinds of flowers you can name in a minute.  Make a list.  Now select one flower from your bouquet and write your poem about that flower today.  Have fun and if you'd like to share your poem, please leave it in the comments.


  1. I love these blue morning glories. They are so pretty. Thanks for your poem.

  2. Good picture... good poem... ily

  3. Joy,
    I love that they sway. They are such a pretty blue. How could they not be happy?

  4. Dear Joy,
    A beautiful poem for one of my favorite blooms.
    Mine are purple and pink; the baby-blue hue is so soft and delicate. And the burst of light radiating from the depth of its centre... simply glorious and oh so JOYFUL!
    Thank you.
