The Purple Scooter Poetry website and blog aim to contribute a bit of gentleness to life, to add softness, lyricism, and feeling to a nation and a world that are too often harsh, loud, and insensitive, and to encourage a love for words and sounds, understanding, and creativity. In so doing, we join the company of many other websites that appreciate the power of poetry and the high importance of words.
The Purple Scooter site celebrates disciplined thinking. It sings of truth and beauty and love. It is full of good humor. Selections for the site are made with great care and without ever forgetting that children are among our most important readers and contributors.
Please spend some time at the Purple Scooter website (www.purplescooterpoetry.org). Consider its various thematic sections. Some are unique. Discover the work of the featured artist Genevieve E. Wood. Rediscover some of our greatest writers and artists. Meet some artists-in-waiting. Check out the many links offered and explore paths to all sorts of wonders.
From time to time, website updates, news, and brief articles will appear in this blog. We will welcome your comments and ideas, either directly to this blog or through the email path provided in the website.
Welcome aboard —
