On Jars

A Poem

Jars are wondrous things.

When you wash them,

their rounded beauty gleams.

And with a rub of eucalyptus oil,

they shed their sticky ways;

becoming label less

and unafraid.

    Label less and unafraid. This is an interesting way to describe the jar’s stripping of identity. It once belonged to a label and now it is no more. It is clear, fresh, free from the constraints of it’s previous identity. It can now simply be.

    Well written Dani!
