Fondness For Cookie Jars

Written for:  dVerse Poet’s Pub, Quadrille #14 (posted by Bjorn)
Today it’s time for a Quadrille again. 44 words that has to include the word of today which is jar. A word that can find many uses, as a noun, or as a verb (with or without an object).

Early gift to Mom
was a cookie jar,
ceramic schoolhouse. It traveled
around with her for years.
Winnie-The-Pooh boarded with me,
then Bugs Bunny. An antique
white rooster lives here now.
Open his head; dog treats
await. Easy bait for dogs’ attention.

  1. A dog treat jar. I like that. 🙂 Mom had a plastic frog cookie jar… No one could snitch because when the lid opened it sang, “Jeremiah was a bullfrog!” until someone misplaced(?) the batteries. 😀

    Love this! I feel like I’m walking through an antique shop that has ceramics from the 50s….so many shapes for cookie jars! Smiling I am.

    I love it. I have an antique cookie jar of my grandmothers – a wishing well and on the sign on the well, I wish I had a cookie! My treat jar for my cat always had treats for him. Alas, the jar lives now without my cat to beg for treats.
