Junk Shop Treasures

Junk Shop

What is a list poem? This poetry style is a collection of people, places, things, ideas, or even words strung together somewhere within a poem to form a list. It is not necessary for the list to rhythm, but the words used should be memorable. I find the freedom when creating a list poem fascinating. The wordplay can be wild and free similar to Indiana weather in the early spring. Therefore, in March, I plan to write a series of list poems. I will title this one Junk Shop Treasures.

Junk Shop Treasures

Army helmets,

Military artifacts,

and patches from the Marines.

Thimbles,

old quilts.

And Snow White figurines.

Cast iron skillets,

A picture of Jesus,

And Santa Clauses galore.

Sharp tools,

A scrub board,

And a doll house to explore.

Bicycles,

Singing fish

Fortune telling weight scales in white

A bear trap

An angry stuffed bear

And a million old bottle to catch the light

Vinyl record albums

A juke box

And a collection of Pillsbury Doughboys

Upside down Christmas trees

Elvis pictures and old comic books

A payphone with slots for a quarter, nickel, and dime

Clocks from every era because we are obsessed with time

One of the favorite things Rooster and i love to do is visit junk shops to look for treasures.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.
