Keeping a Lid on It

Keeping a Lid on It
©2016 Susan Noyes Anderson

Emptied my feelings in a jar
and shook them all around.
They bounced, bled, bubbled purple red
but never made a sound.

Who knew? The ruckus from my head
is now safely contained!
My lid (not flipped), securely closed.
My angst? Bottled (not brained).

Assignment: Write a 44-word quadrille including the word "jar"

Ah.. I wonder if the pressure will increase in that jar.

I can relate but you need to let off the steam of that lid, Sue! Enjoyed your quadrille!

Susan Anderson said...

Yeah. I know. It was mostly facetious...just having some fun with the notion. Wouldn't it be nice if it worked? 😊

Oh good - now we know what to do! LOL This was an entertaining read.

Excellent! If only there WERE such jars to store those bottled up feelings until they dissipated. A very clever poem. Love your originality.
