|It's as if the universe were one incredible organism, which it is -
and we are all "star stuff" which we are. But I waste so many words in saying so dryly what you say so poetically.

This is very thought provoking.

|A beautiful poem Asa. Reach out to the one who gave you life and seek his will. Keep writing Asa, as you have a true talent. May God bless you every day of your life.
|Reviewed by MaryGrace Patterson
|This poem is profound and has so much depth! It's wonderful that Asa can find beauty and comfort in something which is seen on a nightly basis and taken for granted by many. It's special if one looks beyond the outer surface and can see the infinite beauty of the cosmos .Prison life can be hard and cruel at times. I'm glad he has the depth and perception to look beyond and let his soul touch the endless magnatude of heavenly spheres. Please keep sharing his poems with us. I believe they can make a difference in someones life....M|

|Joyce, Asa has discovered that the stars are the ears of Heaven. Communicating with God. Men may turn a deaf ear to our pleas, but the stars never abandon our needs for ethereal wisdom. Twinkling in response. Asa's work shows wisdom has overtaken whatever errors he made in the past. My wishes for peace, joy and love to both of you. Jon Michael|

|The simplicity of your words betray the complexity of emotions that are wrought by confinement. I can relate to the sense of escape that is enjoyed by marvelling at the night sky that belongs to you no less that anyone else outside the wall. A talented write Asa, would love to read more.
Stay strong brother,

|All of nature, the heavens and the earth, are gifts from God and how fortunate we are to be blessed with the things that can comfort us mch yet ask nothing in return. Beautifully written, meaningful piece Asa. Best to you and God bless ~ Elizabeth|

|Beautifully written Asa. The Lord knows what comforts we each enjoy whether it be stars or clouds, or mountains, or flowing waters. God's creation can bring such peace to our lives if we only let it.

|Sometimes we have to be still to communicate with He who listens completely, caringly, and without judgment. Lot’s of us have been in a time and place when it seemed as though there was no one to listen... that’s when we must realize, a line is always open to the One you can always connect with; the One whose ears are all about us, even in the stars! Very well written, I love it!!|

|Reviewed by Darkest Angel (Reader)
|Soul and vision are strong in this writing, beginning to end. Stars as companions, this is a lovely spiritual connection. Your expressions are invigorating and cause great thought in a pleasant way; this has good complexity, and good simplicity. It is a warming feel, and is visually stunning. Great writing skills ... I am so jealous....|
|Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper
|All of us have to reach out and grab hold of "something" to hold onto. For Asa, it is the stars in the heaven as they bring peace to his thoughts. Nice job!|
