three jars

i found three jars on the side of the road
such a mystery to me
one evening quite by accident
my eyes just happened to see
one filled with tomatoes as if someone had canned
one with elbow macaroni
maybe two or three hands
and one with chocolates wrapped in brightly colored
specially colored pink and blue for a boy or a girl
and since they sat so specifically
i left them there, not peculating but untouched
hoping that someone would come along who missed them
very much.
