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.

Sometimes my writing
hits a wall,
can't move forward,
no words at all.

And then I look
more carefully
between each stone--

A pebble, a vine
growing there
even grass and ferns
sway in the air.

At the wall
there is much to see
if I just wait

  What do you do when you can't think of anything to write?  I look out my window and watch.  For your poetry challenge for today, stand at a window and look out.  What do you see?  Can you write about that?  Have fun writing.

   You can observe a lot by watching.  Yogi Berra


  1. I love your use of "fertility." This is a lovely photo and poem! Inspirational too!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the ink and water color. I did have fun with this one. I wasn't certain about using fertility in a children's poem, but it wanted to be there, so it is.
