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.

warm desert sunshine
on the fence a butterfly
my heart a flutter

    It is a beautiful day today.  The birds are having a gathering at my feeder.  The wind has settled to a gentle breeze.  I'm thankful for this day and thankful you have stopped by to read my poem.  Can you write your own haiku today?  Have fun writing.


  1. Joy,
    Inspired by today's sermon:

    "Its better to give,"
    His final words proclaimed.
    "I wish I'd done more."

    1. Linda, this is a good one. WOW! Perhaps you should consider entering it in the NC Poetry Society annual contest at: http://www.ncpoetrysociety.org/adultcontests/

      I don't think you need the quotation marks around the last line--it leads the reader to believe it is the voice of the speaker in the first line.

  2. You're so encouraging, Joy. I will check it out. Thanks!
