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.

Midnight MAGIC

A snail
   slips along his trail,
       silver threads
           a road map
              for stars to slide
                 from the night
                    sky to dance
                           a jig in the garden.

     You have until 2:00 this afternoon, MST, to enter the drawing for a free copy of GUESS WHO'S IN THE DESERT, a rhyming riddle book written by Charline Profiri.  If you'd like to be entered in the drawing, leave a comment on my Friday post.


  1. Joy,

    Great imagery! Thanks for sharing all your creative thoughts.


  2. "silver threads"
    Such a perfect way to say it. And what fun to imagine the stars sliding down from the sky for a dance! a.
