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.

Like a child on Christmas morning,
clouds creep over the mountains,
slow, and then they run.
Light shines on the hillside,
it gleams with morning sun,
a new day has begun.

     Can you tell I was up early today?  Can you write your own poem about your morning?  Have fun writing.


  1. I really like this one. All kinds of pictures jump into my mind.. Both Xmas and skies. Wish I had known u were up super early. Need to get a zipper in a skirt today... They need my sewing table back for a party this weekend. ILY

  2. Beautiful to 'see' in my mind's eye, Joy. I like the way you did the rhyming.

  3. Thank you. finally the monsoon has arrived. We are having a deluge of rain. Yipee. Now if the temp will drop, it is going to be so nice. I just watched a big lizard scuttle across the patio to a puddle for a drink. Then I noticed there were several flying bugs around that puddle too. I guess the lizard is going to get dinner with his drink.

  4. Joy,
    I enjoyed the simile. Clever comparison.
