The moon was complete, full over warm
The sea became suddenly calm horizon to
Our long-awaited rendezvous had come to a climax.
The moonlight danced on our spent, bare bodies.
We lay in each other’s arms, there on our blanket, the Seashore,
oblivious to time or space.
My mermaid said, “we must do this again,”soon.
My life commitment was to self, while
her resolute devotion grew.
It was only a matter of time and she
grew to love me too
What If Summit
Some extremely savvy and sage, prognosticators consider Hanoi an exceptional choice for President Trump and Kim Jong-un to have a Summit meeting. I thought it was possibly a dangerous, even poor choice when you consider how long the US was at war with both countries. The Korean people are not as begrudging.
Vietnam no doubt has numerous, maybe a multitude of people with animosity, or downright hatred towards the USA. Hopefully, the Vietnamese leaders hosting the Summit have softened and are more forgiving now that we are trusted trading partners.
It has crossed my mind, Trump and Kim Jong-un may be staying at the Hanoi Hilton. I personally hope they choose a different Hotel even if there is no Trump Towers in Hanoi yet.
A totally absurd hypothetical came to mind. What if they lock Trump in his room? Then it dawned on me, The U.S. Congress could be deadlocked for many months over a decision to send someone to get him or not. There are many scenarios, Congress might even trade someone else for him. It could drag on for years.
My writing did stink
It really made me think
My old glasses helped
Now it is just indistinct
The test of my new craft was set for sundown. Sun dogs on the Horizon beckoned me, a beautiful site to behold. I had no need to speed, just enjoy the setting sun for a bit. Always careful with flight controls yet bumped the throttle, the speed lock stuck on high. The sun was soon overhead, then set again. Three sunsets later the earth was much smaller in my rear view mirror.
The candidate promised to repeal Obamacare, the nation got Helter-Skelter, as the alternative.
The candidate promised to build a wall on the United States southern border, and Mexico will pay for it, voters got Helter-Skelter.
The candidate promised to suspend immigration from terror-prone places, more Helter-Skelter.
The candidate promised to lower taxes for everyone. It sounds like a shell game to fuel more long term Helter-Skelter.
The candidate promised to fix old worn and dangerous National infrastructure, that too got lost in this new Helter-Skelter madness. Politicians now call it government.
The candidate has accumulated an unprecedented list of liars who were fired or quit in the past two years.
