The old songs
sing the pain
I have seen lately,

penning its
path on my
face in wrinkled lines

of writing ...
of life you can read.

You know the
lyrics as
well as I do and

sing along ...
our tears blend
together and flow

in measured
rhythyms of
collective sadness.

(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

Nicely tied together. Most of us think of New Orleans in terms of the music and food. The Delta region of Mississippi is inevitably linked to the Blues. You've captured this nicely.

Beautiful Words~! ((((((Hugs))))))) Karla. All of this is a collective saddness, but I think there will be a change in everything imaginable, and everything will be for the better. I have to keep believing this becasue it's the only hope that is left. It's a time of cleansing.

Yup. Echoing what Eileen said. Kudos. Sad time. Can't see a silver lining, but I know there has to be one. If not? why?
Reviewed by E T Waldron 9/7/2005
Superb ode to the climate of a nation! A gem Karla!
