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.

runs across the road
white tail
a flash with uncertainty
hopping west
dashing east
under a bush
around a century plant
lost from sight
heading south
like so many
the tail catches the eye
but the feet create wonder
trying to find true north.

     What direction are you heading today?  Can you write a poem today about directions?  Have fun.


  1. I like that 'flash with uncertainty' Joy. Happy Monday!

  2. nice poem and congratulations, linda!

  3. Thanks Linda,
    I was trying to show the rabbit running in confusion. Actually I first wrote "aflash" as one word.

    Thanks for stopping by, Carol.
