Oh perfect piece of pottery
Harbinger of joyous celebration
You're empty now.....
But it wasn't always such!!
Your belly once brimmed with sugary delights.
Mom's Loving Labor
After School Favors.
For years now you've waited in eager silence...
For another batch of memories.
Since Mom and Grandma are long since gone.
And My kids are grown.
And I have no grandchildren yet....
The old Cookie Jar has been tucked away in the far reaches of the house unused in years.
It used to be the center of endless Family Fun and Togetherness.
But now the house feels so empty.
Just like the Cookie Jar....
