If I had a... Jar

My jar is large, 
Big enough for a child 
To crawl inside,
Big enough for an imagination 
to hide.
I'll take my dreams 
And thoughts
And plans,
Each one a colored ribbon,
A silky strand,
Plucked from my head.
I'll drop them in
Watch them mix
And knot
And blend
Into a messy ball.
These are the treasures
Not coins 
Or shiny jewels.
My jar is large.
Big enough for an imagination
Like ours.


  1. I think someone should illustrate this. :-)

    1. I started one last night, but I didn't have time to finish it. Maybe I'll get to it later today. We shall see...
