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.

Bring on the sunrise.
Bring on the fire.
Bring on a day
that will inspire.

   I hope you are enjoying your Presidents Day.  Have you been able to get any writing done today?  Try, even a little haiku.  The picture shows the sunrise that greeted me today.
On my walk this morning I fed the ducks.  It is becoming a small daily treat for me.  I threw some of the bread crumbs into the pond and was delighted with the fish leaping up to grab the food.  What was a treat in your life today?  Can you try writing a poem about it?  Have fun.

 Left to its own devices, writing is like weather.  It has a drama, a form, a force to it that shapes the day.  Julia Cameron


  1. Joy,
    You find pleasure in the small things. That's what makes you such a happy person. Keep looking for nature's treasures and treats.

    1. How is your day shaping up, Linda? You're in my prayers.
