American Warship and Chinese “Junk” Meet in Hong Kong

Today’s prompt from Sammi Cox has given me an opportunity to reflect back on some journeys of my youth. The word prompt set one of my old photos in mind, The Meeting of East and West.

Here then is my take on the challenge “Fringe” and the word count of 34:

Hong Kong

Forty years have passed now,

And so has old Hong Kong.

Two worlds there came together –

Meeting at a fringe.

East and West entwining,

Cultures flowed and merging there-

And were forever together hinged.

Padre
