Farm Supply Store


What is a list poem? This poetry style collects a list 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 Farm Supply Store.

Farm Supply Store

Chopped firewood outside the door

Metal firepits for sale

Next to colorful yard chairs

Bags of fertilizer and grass seed

Stacked on a concrete floor

All at bargain prices without fail

Twenty-five pound bags of animal feed

Yellow, blue, and grey planters and bags of soil

A giant windmill standing tall and proud

Next to the work gloves and boots

Whiter socks, t-shirt, and blue jeans

Wire wrapped in a spindle or coil

Christian music played on the store intercom loud

Guns in a glass case riffles along the wall ready to shoot

Camouflage gear in shades of browns and greens

Rows of seed packets waiting for soil

Fishing poles and lures and hooks

Spring chick chirping to be set free

Dailey essentials you can purchase in bulk

Tractor batteries lined up in a need rows

A henhouse and chicken raising books

Deep animal water troughs past the knee

Chicken feed and the birds that squawk

Garden implements, racks, and hoes

Trinkets at the checkouts to tempt you to splurge

A rooster key chain or candy bar if you have the urge

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.
