A Poet's Garage Sale - Come One Come All

Buy one, get one free!
Waste no time, come and see!

If you are looking for a metaphor
please check the green box at the front door.

Similes are in a stack, take all you want
Hiding under the wizard's hat.

Acrostic words, there are very few
But there are many old and new haiku.

Love phrases are stacked sky high
Wasted tears stacked up to the sky.

Woeful plea's, some old some new
Pick the one best suited for you.

Quatrains in piles are in rows of four
Couplets in twos sit by the back door.

Pantoun, sonnets, odes of love
Are on ladders reaching the heavens above.

Take your time for For verses of rhyme, 
Some are borrowed from old father time.

This sale will be held just for a day
I have things to do, happiness is on the way.

Buy any one with a kiss, two of any thing with a hug
Three by standing on your head, , four with a tug...

On my day dreams ready to go out and play
Recycled heart strings are free...molded in clay.

The sale ends at midnight on the day after forever!
No returns accepted, take every purchase and do something clever!

    Cynthia, wow...i love this line the most..."Love phrases are stacked sky high Wasted tears stacked up to the sky." I've just noticed how everything in your poem is brilliant. I like the way you really poet-fied this garage sale.. I know my sister will love this poem. We both have the same taste. Except when it comes to men, she likes dark I love white...LOL... anyways, I'm looking taking that green box on the floor. I love metaphors. Good luck~ PD

    :-)) This is very inventive and a pleasure to behold. If I do not act fast, the trail will run cold. Stack my order by the back door. I will take everything, and much more!. :-)) Love, Suzette
