Garage Sale Day

sale, garage sale


A Poem by JTR Franklin

On a warm, sunny, summer day, a garage sale is under way.

Toys, hats, clothes,

and more. All lay on blankets, the great outdoors turned into a store.

Little pants at one time

came to life on young legs. Shirts once breathed along with a child, as it covered its little chest.

Pajamas that slept warm and snug in a bed.

Some shoes that once ran, hats that kept warm a little tots head.

A few toys that one time

were the bright spot in a child’s day. All the items lay hoping to once again to live, run, sleep, and play.
