this jar contains my dreams
lid screwed tight
to protect them,
to keep them safe
I crouch, ensconced within glass,
part of the world
Ethereal dreams, will-o-the-wisp,
you are my saviour.
It’s Monday and time for the quadrille over on dVerse. This week, Bjorn (welcome back!) invites us to write on the theme of ‘jar’, in whatever form inspires us.
At the moment, the film The BFG is all the rage, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth. In the City of London I came across the engaging installation you see above outside The Royal Exchange, which is on my way to the office. A Dream Jar Trail is all over London, and will raise money for Save the Children, to help children’s dreams come true. So, as soon as I saw ‘jar’, I was inspired!
Please do head on over to dVerse to delve into other quadrilles, and why not take part yourself?
