She backed out of the front door of her apartment with her puffy purple suitcase in tow and saw him for the first time in months.

“Where are you headed?” he asked.

“To Hay-on-Wye in Wales for a couple months. I want to be inspired by all of the books,” she replied.

(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

Sail Bay

Boatsat morning,
charming dreams mesmerize
hope, bound as a spell
pleasant balance upon sunrise

at midday,
telling thy fortune of years ago
senses of hyper-influence
however the thoughts may flow

at sunset,
overlooking pebbled Sail Bay
of a homely corner, of serenity
many an enchanted day

at midnight,
whispering promises of new
feel them, touch them, taste them
dreams sweep over and through
