Through Lines Position

cut communication and power lines cutting off electricity supply
nuclear plant Hong Kong initiated emergency response schemes

implementing difficult but necessary operational changes
address position in a maturing and more competitive industry
end-to-end solution of hardware, software and services

superstitions don't see an eagle will be a bad day
five-hour battle through 4m waves to get his tiny boat home
a delicate coral "tongue" let umami flavours wash over

The High Ground

Apparently, according to astrobiologists, we stink.
Blame the temperatures.
Actually, we persist,

and think up plans for habitable forms.
We made our camp in a spectrum of gears,
the absolute sun that we all live to study,

and projected an unlikely city
that could be almost right.
Perhaps, we think, the experts are coming.
