(L) List Poem

photo-1429032021766-c6a53949594fI would have to say that I am a fan of this poetic form. I am a list maker 🙂

A list poem names a series of things, such as actions, images, places, or thoughts. It is sometimes called a catalog poem. Many of Walt Whitman’s poems are list poems.

I created my own, titled “Journal Pages”:

journal pages
full of life and love;
a refreshing pint
at the Fifield Pub;
cactus blooms
beneath a pumpkin sky;
smiles and laughter
from the cutie-pies;
splendid experiences
a new fiction story;
for all those dear:
peace, love and safety
