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.

Post Thanksgiving Cinquain

dinner again
biscuits and pumpkin pie
bowls of left over turkey soup

   How many days did you eat your turkey?  I've put the left over soup in the freezer now.  It will be wonderful on one of the busy cold December evenings.  Can you write your own turkey poem today?  You pick the form you'd like to use.  Have fun.


  1. Joy,
    I'm grateful for leftovers. I'm especially grateful for loyal friends like you. I enjoy reading your poems every day.

    1. Thank you for reading my poems everyday (even on the days when the poems are still in draft form or pretty lame.)
      I really enjoy your visits and comments. You always have good ideas for me. Thank you.

  2. I love that 'eating dinner/again' Joy. Exactly right for this holiday!

  3. Linda,
    Thank you. I'm getting better at writing cinquains. This one was fun to write. I'm getting ready to leap into holiday poems, but I'm trying to wait until December.
    Today at the thrift shop I saw a similes dictionary. I'm getting lots of ideas from it.
