MS (8.4.1929 / Marton, Lancashire)

Lone Star Night

A true warm breeze
from the South Texas blue
Brings back the hue
Of colors in my rainbow

Taking away the pain
On the Wind
As a tropic love song plays
Like a current on the bay waters

I have left my heart
North of here, south of there
And everywhere in between the oceans

A new romance
She whispered beautiful Mexican
Into my mind

A silver bracelet slid softly down her arm
As she brought up her hand
And grazed the back of it
Across my lonely face

And then I saw that lone star
Shining in her eyes
I saw where I'll be leaving my heart next

Well said, great sonnet. I really like this form, a good poet can put a lot into a Sonnet. You ARE a poet and you put a lot into this one.10++
Very profound piece, thank you for sharing! Malaya
The last two lines contain questions that I also want to ask, in fact I have a whole lot of questions that I want to ask. It's a pity that I didn't ask them when he was alive, it's the same old story, we simply didn't talk enough.
Written from the heart, enough to move anyone. Nicely done. Best Wishes Helgard
