I’ve been a huge follower of the American space program for as long as I can remember. So it is a no brainer that I watched the SpaceX Dragon launch. I noticed that it was from the same space pad as the moon launches and shuttle launches of the past. I was inspired to write a poem, something to be uplifting instead of our current doom and gloom.
Around this time, the editor of this magazine was interested in featuring an astropoem about the launch. A mutual friend put us together.
On June 21st, The Starlight Emporium Magazine put out its summer issue and my three-part poem “From Pad 39-A” was published as part of the poetry collection.
Starlight Emporium is a beautiful art magazine filled with colorful paintings, illustrations, poetry, and short stories. A full 152 pages! I am honored to be included. Available in print and pdf.
