Canning jam

Canning jam

Canning jam,
tin lids pop
sporadically,
sealing sweets
under glass,
stealing my
tongue away
from poems.

  1. I don’t know what is in the jars, but it looks incredibly delicious!

  2. I love the sound of jars sealing. My cousin taught me to make jam and she said that the pop says, “Success!” Sweet poem…

    • Thank you, Jessica! Have you canned any jam this summer? It’s such a rewarding endeavor, your taste buds won’t let you forget the sugary goodness! Hope you had a relaxing weekend. Did you go to da Vinci Days? The festivities and live music were wonderful this year.

    love that you are canning jam and writing poems! Thats talent and lucky!

    • Thank you, my friend! Word play at work, so much fun in the kitchen πŸ™‚ The blueberry jam was wonderful, although most of the jars have been dispatched fast down my gullet & into my stomach! I let my wife have the marionberry jam…the seeds get stuck in my teeth! I hope you are having a good week, wearing autumn colors with each step, a leaf trail leading to your doorstep πŸ™‚
      Cheers,
      Tyler
