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.

red and green lights flash
on the helicopter--
a hawk flies circles

   Sorry I'm so late today.  It has been really busy.  Can you try writing your own haiku based on something you see? 
    There is supposed to be a meteor shower tonight, perhaps that will be a great subject for you.


  1. A helicopter
    perched on a hospital pad
    transports sick patients.

  2. Wow. You are back! For some reason, I stopped receiving email notices of your blog posts. So glad to see you again. Nice poem.
