………………..Cabeus A
………………..more questions
………………..than answers

..

………………..wildest dreams come true―
………………..rockets launched
………………..against the moon

..

………………..the truth remains
………………..stranger than fiction―
………………..in search of water
………………..we bomb
………………..the moon

    Paul, well written. I enjoy reading your poem. It’s infused with deep thoughts. I’m impressed by your allusion to Mark Twain’s remark on the relationship between fiction and truth. Thanks for sharing.

    Chen-ou Thank you for this. The thought of ‘bombing’ the moon struck me as being most bizarre.

    “Bombing the moon” as a phrase is positively surreal to me. It is most bizarre indeed Paul.
