    When I read collection of stars in a bowl, I recall the first poem of 'The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam' of poet Omar Khayyam (see PH)
    Awake! for Morning in the Bowl of Night
    Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight...
    Jar of stars nicely developed. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    It has a child's eccentricity, that makes it charming, was it the after mentioned wine that let you write this I imagine?
    I heard of catching stars but I'm afraid I get sun burned. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful free-spirited poem which twists and turns whichever way the sub-filled mason jars whimsically led. (Report) Reply

    Like a visionry, you trapped all glowing objects in your jar and let it out to illumine the dark world around! ! I see each of them flying to all dark corners leaving a blazing trail on its way! I enjoyed the last part of it! The practical man in you put good use to the emptied jars... you made wine in them! ! Great! ! (Report) Reply

    A very imaginative poem.. I remember when back in the days Mason jars
    were used for canning, You used yours to capture the sun, stars and
    lightning bolts. Quite electrifying. A nice write. (Report) Reply
