i wish it was like jam
spread thickly, sticking sure to everything
delicious variety too – providing a sweetness
that smothers sorrow and bitter discontent
giving life bright colour and flavour
jars of happiness, delight – opened, shared
with more cellared in our hearts
for those future days of need

Melissa’s prompt for this week’s Six Word Fridays is joy and since it’s full-on jam-making season, it got me thinking that joy and jam could be one and the same. For more Six Word Fridayness, visit Making Things Up.
