For the citizens of the Gulf Coast States, who've lost so much.

Come back to your first love,
the reason you moved here
in the first place.
She's calling to you from
the depths of her being,
wanting you home.
Her songs, much bluer now,
since you left; no reason
to sing no more.
The food she cooks sits on
the table, waiting for
you to return.
The accent you found so
endearing, silent now;
as are her tears.
Her family is gone,
scattered to the four winds;
you're all she has.
Come back to your first love,
the reason you moved here
in the first place.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

Beautifully said Karla, rebuilding is a long process, and it takes help...
love and peace, Carole

Kinda hard to "com back" when there are no support systems, i.e., schopols, hospitals, bus service, and a number of other bare necessary things to be able to live life. The recovery process seems to have stall, especially in New Orleans, back to the same old whine. There have been college kids come down on their "spring break" to help clean up the city. Each and every time they have shown them on television, you never see anyone from the city working alongside them. That says everything.

Compassionate and beautiful write Karla! We can only hope and pray that it can be rebuilt. The forecast for this hurricain season isn't good. We must pray diligently! Weather patterns are in a very destructive mode.

a splendid invitation to rekindle what was lost ... with help from concerned citizens and a lot of determination (as well as funds) from the gov't, the gulf will be reborn again ...

Build it and they will come
so will her citizens of the "Big Easy" return when
they finish her makeover

Love & Peace

Nice poetic invitation, Karla! I'm sure some of those folks will be back. With the spirit of cooperative effort, the building will be done with community of spirit, which will raise the walls quicker so that the roofs may be attached for all of those to gather under a new town. Blessed Be.

I lived there while setting up a gallery a few years back and I made a lot of friends. One of my clients there just got back from New Orleans where his company had a conference. He said Bourbon Street was full of construction workers and people there to help make New Orleans whole once more. He said he didn't find many natives. It is a sad cord that this news struck with me. New Orleans is an entity all within herself...a foreign country in our country. She has her own charm, her people spoke a language all their own and the food, religion and passion was all a part of her charming radiance. I can't believe for a minute that this spirit is broken. I believe in my heart that New Orleans is merely in a recuperative state and she will bounce back with her jazz and blues and talent. Thanks for the poem. It gave me reflections into why I found NO to be a friend.
Reviewed by Peter Paton 4/4/2006
A beautiful and evocative offering..
I believe New Orleans will be even greater than before, when all the restoration work is done and completed, and God willing a new spirit of community and love in its inhabitants..
Love and Blessings
