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.

Night's refreshing rain
crickets chirp and frogs bellow
then a morning rainbow

   I'm sitting on my lanai in my shorts and a t-shirt watching and listening to the Kauai chickens.  It is a beautiful, sunny morning.  A mother hen and three little chicks are strutting across the grass, searching for grubs.  All is well in my world.
   How are things in your world?  Can you write your own poem today bout the state of things in your world?  Have fun writing.

  1. Sounds blissful! Glad you are enjoying your new surroundings!

    1. It really is quite beautiful. Now, if my stuff would just arrive so I can get settled. Thanks for the Christmas card, Tabatha.

  2. Paradise! It's all yours to enjoy! So happy for you. Greeted by rainbows!

    1. Took an evening walk last night. There is a duck pond just down the road. I'm going to have to take some bread with me on my next walk. I saw cows, horses and lots of dogs barked at me. We picked up a couple of star fruit at one of those "on your honor" fresh fruit stands. So many interesting things to discover.
