POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

VALUE

When you can buy
Anything you desire
Those possessions
No longer have
Value.

Life’s Cycle

When young
You reach
To the future,
In old age
The reach is done,
Now,
The waiting begins.

OPINIONS & OBSERVATIONS

A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE, PERHAPS
I know, I know, this blog is meant to benefit writers on trying to get published. But there is so much ‘stuff’ going on in our country that I find it difficult to concentrate on this blog’s purpose, and for that matter, on this country’s current purpose.
I will return with information for writers. I promise. But I cannot ignore what is happening to the country I love, why it is happening and what the future may hold.

Shortly after the new tax bill was passed, I read or heard a prediction. Unfortunately I cannot quote the source. But the prediction was you would be able to tell which companies were using the new-found wealth to benefit their company and improve the economy. You could also identify the companies who didn’t give a shit about the economy or their workers. There only aim was to benefit the stock holders by buying back their stock.
The information that follows is from an article written by Stan Choe of the Associated Press. I read the article in the Daily Local New, a Pennsylvania paper 6/28/18. In this article he states:
“Stock repurchases hit 189.1 billion dollars in the first quarter for S&P 500 according to preliminary results from S&P Dow Jones Indices. That tops the prior record of 171.9 billion set during the summer of 2017, just before the Great Recession struck.”
There is a great deal more information in the article, and if you are interested in this country’s future, check it out.
This country has become a fiction which I cannot believe.
I tried to find the article to include in this piece. It’s like it disappeared.

POEMS AND FLEETING THOUGHTS: THE HUMANITY OF MISTAKES.

Have you ever made a mistake and said, “I’m only human?”
Being a writer of science fiction, my mind dwelled on the phrase.

Who knows why?

Of course at this point I let my imagination take over, conquering rational thought. I pictured an expedition to a distant planet much like ours. They landed and found no occupants. After months of searching one of the team found a document explaining the demise of the civilization. “We were a race of perfection. No mistakes were ever made. Eventually, we die of boredom.

LIVING THE STORM

Just wanted to tell you folks that the descriptions of the storm the east coast is now living though are more than accurate.

I have had a self-standing basket ball net at the end of my driveway for perhaps 25 years hoping one of my girls might enjoy the game. Neither one did, and although my youngest is 5’11”, she is a farmer.

I’m telling this because, for the first time, this hoop has blown down. The wind and snow could produce a wealth of poems, but for the common man, is it a hassle to be handled.

I hope to produce more for this blog, but a lesson for the young. If you want a career in writing; START NOW. Age had a tendency to slow you down.

OBSERVATION & OPINIONS

WHEN WILL WE EVER LEARN

The recent tragedy in Florida should never have happened and the guilt is divided among many levels. The news speaks to this, I will not here.

To say this country’s desire of gun ownership and tolerance of the violence they cause is beyond comprehension. I’m not saying guns should be banned. The problem is determining who should be allowed to own them. That determination, as of now, is beyond the powers that be. To do this will take difficult decisions and our current government is not willing or able to make those decisions to protect our citizens.

I have come up with a solution.

Donate more money than the NRA is able to the campaigns of congressmen. If that is done change may be accomplished. The representatives of this country appear to put the continuation of their career before the welfare of the people they represent.

This is a sad situation, but I fear it is the truth.
