Welcome to poems and haiku for all ages, along with children’s poetry, PhotoPoetry, Charley’s occasional blog about becoming a dizzy poet and the books that have resulted.

Absent -mindedly

Carving hundreds of peace signs

In the sand with her foot

During a long lunchtime

She considers that day’s sandwich

As being particularly good
