Thanks for your comments, aurora and tikkis. I won't comment on the results because this is not a political blog.

Well, it's all about choices, floots. And after writing this I remembered Walt Whitman's "The United States is essentially the greatest poem." That sounds jingoistic until you remember that, for Whitman, the US was very much a work in progress, in need of constant revision.

--Interesting juxtaposition of politics and poetry--the two need constant revision, otherwise, they stagnate.

---Your haikus are drops of rainy beauty. One reads them and feels thirsty for more and more.

A pleasure to meet you, Rita.

Yes, I know Robert quite well--in cyberspace, that is. We've never met face to face. He's a subtle and generous reader, and a fine poet as well. I think of his work as quite different from mine, so it's interesting to me that you find a similarity there.

I just paid a brief visit to your blog. I'm getting ready to go out of town for a few days. I'll make another visit, and stay longer, when I return.

Well, I have learned a lot from R. Willson who dares to criticize objectively. I think that you share the same subtlity in writing.
I expect to hear from you soon.
