Jelly Jars – March Prompts 12/31

Of all the things you hold most dear.

M’s writing prompts for March came with the following instructions:

“…set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts listed below.ย  Donโ€™t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!”

Let us see what I can do in ten minutes…

You can see the prompts here.

There is a man with jelly jars

Keeps babies teeth and fallen stars

And virgins tears and la-de-das

And fathers best cigars


Into your home he sneaks at night

And steals the things you hold so tight

And harvests thought both dark and light

And steals them without fight


And when you wake it feels amiss

You cant remember your first kiss

You thought you had more cash than this

and fear replaces bliss


and so he steals your dreams and plans

and time and love holds in his hands

lets slip away like grains of sands

and returns to distant lands
