Leaving land of lone star

of heat, humidity, and horses

on a huge white bird

over open ocean

in night’s ebony embrace

Out of the ominous

an amazing archipelago

the pearl of perfection

the majesty of mountains

home

    “night’s ebony embrace”

    “out of the ominous”

    “the pearl of perfection”

    Texas may be the “land of lone star” but this poem is a galaxy of starshine.
