Lovely Lure

Lovely Lure

(Free Style)

Store Front at B&N

I marvel at
the civic pride
displayed on sidewalk storefronts.

Ornately crafted
flower pots
festooned in vivid color

set a scene

serene

and clean

that draw the eyes
of passerby’s
like siren calls
of Ancient Greece.

They pull within
their walls.

So, in the end,
you spend.

What deeds
such scenes
portend.

But still,

I marvel at
the civic pride
displayed on sidewalk storefronts.

Author’s Notes:
The store owners in the local Malls do a beautiful job of landscaping and decorating their property. Even though I know that it is meant to lure me in for sales, I can’t help admiring the effort and expense.

This is a Free Style poem.
A Free Style Poem is a subset of Free Verse. It has no rhyme scheme, tempo, or meter pattern. It just flows with the words. The author adds dimension in how the poem is felt, through the use of pace and pause, created in how the words are arranged on the page. The distinction between Free Style and Free Verse is that Free Style contains some rhyme while Free Verse does not. It rhymes in places as the author wants, but not necessarily consistently.
