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.

 It was exciting to see all the flamingoes on Lake Nakuru.  This is the first time I've ever seen flamingoes in the wild.  Something would startle the birds and they would all take off together, fly in a wide circle and then come back to settle on the lake again where they would dive for food in the muddy shelf where they stood.


  1. Joy,
    Another wonderful first! So glad you enjoyed yourself so much and brought it back to share with us.

  2. I really like this one. Haikus are deceptively difficult to write well, but you did!
