An Ode to the Mason Jar

You are found in cupboards holding preserves, peaches and buttons.

You are humble and timeless and strong.

And now you are shabby chic.

Coveted by brides with shining eyes and good taste.

You are big enough to quench a summer thirst, yet small enough to fit inside the ‘c’ of a  human hand.

You are versatile.

You light the way.

You adorn.

You satisfy.

You mark.

You are ubiquitous and cheap.

Come here. I want to hold you.
