Red, White and Blue

I was strolling along in town one day when this Junk Shop caught my eye.
Now I was only idling, dreaming as I passed by.
I was thinking of writing a poem about Red, White and Blue;
( When 'True Colours' suggests it, that is what I do.)
'I must avoid the Union Jack!' was going through my mind
Followed by 'What alternative am I possibly going to find?'
Being a Brit, 'Red, White and Blue' had me standing to attention,
But then it seemed too obvious to even rate a mention.
When suddenly a window seemed to flash across my gaze!
And it filled the said criteria in really perfect ways!
Now, when the owner made a plan to change her window theme,
What made her think of this decor, this blended colour-scheme?
And what made me walk down that street? It's not my usual route!
And what made me glance at her window, so crammed with pre-loved loot?
I'm really not superstitious! I prefer reality.
But this was a great example of SERENDIPITY!

A fantastic find and an even better poem! Well done, Rinkly.

Chance finds are always the best, I relie on them a lot.

Fun... and of course in this part of the world I'd think of "Old Glory" rather than "Union Jack". Do you suppose the U. S. used red, white, & blue in its flag as a reminder of England?

SERENDIPITY seems to have become part of your life :)))
