Jar of Stars

I went outside to gather some stars
All plucked one at a time from the sky
Then placed them carefully in my jar

You my friend may be wondering why
These little stars such beautiful things
All plucked one at a time from the sky

To my lover this gift I will bring
So I can sprinkle dust in her hair
These little stars such beautiful things

With this gift I show how much I care
I ask her if she can close her eyes
So I can sprinkle dust in her hair

Her hair is glowing I'm mesmorized
We savor the kiss she strokes my face
I ask her if she can close her eyes

There is such love as we both embrace
We savor the kiss she strokes my face
I went outside to gather some stars
Then placed them carefully in my jar

Bring'n in the Stars poetry contest.

    I love seeing everyone's take on this contest. Stars make a poets mind go wild and I'm fascinated at seeing where it takes them. Your really a fan of these terzanelle's aren't you? I like how the repetition is so subtle you don't really even notice unless you literally scan for it. I wonder if by "stars in a jar" you are referring to fireflies... they sorta resemble stars ;)

    I can see how you could think that but no I meant stars.

    This is romantic and dreamy, incorporating celestial light and love into one! Beautiful. This form is your strong point. You always do exceptionally well in it.

    Whimsical with lovely reality. I takes great talent to make something so wonderful using the subject of stars.

    Ooh, dem stars, dem stars. Your belle surely would never lose her starry-eyed look when seeing you after such treatment. Your personality shines through in this tender write. My very best of luck to you in the contest. Well done, my friend. :)
