The Jar

So, rhondaparrish gave an exercise this week of doing rictameters. A rictameter is a nine line poem with set syllables. The syllable count for a rictameter is 2,4,6,8,10,8,6,4,2. The first and last lines are the same.

I attempted three or four of them. Here's the only successful attempt.

The jar
gleams in the light.
The colors are vivid.
I am blinded by their brightness.
Egyptian figures encircle the lip.
It is made of painted red clay.
It is not very old.
It holds water.
The jar.
