Nearly two years already ...

The Season In Hell

... came in dire forecasts, on the
heated breath of the Gulf, in
one storm after another.
One bad enough.  Katrina,
the big mamajama that
outbadded them all, a she -
devil of wickedness, took
us down, down, into the depths,
into the watery pits
of Hell.  The wet, how it burned!

Still trying to atone for
sins, still trying to rebuild.

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (8/8)

Dear Karla,

This may be my favorite of yours so far.

The wet, how it burned!
the big mamajama that outbadded them all

You tell of the force, the domination.

I truly pray we never see the likes of this She-Devil again. And I truly cannot believe that we cannot seem to get the re-building done almost two years later. Half of once glorious New Orleans still lies in ruin today.

Katrina has shown the world another side to America...
Reviewed by Walt Hardester 8/9/2007
So here we are this year....three months into the season, nary a whimper have we heard, except for your stalled front which wreaked a havoc on it's own. Could it be Mother nature has looked the other way for a time? and may give us a break this year? We can only keep our fingers crossed.

A storm that will forever linger in the thoughts and memories of many across the nation, a storm that has affected the lives of many. A great write!

Yes she will go down in history as the mother of all storms and it will be a long time before its madness will be forgotten or forgiven.

I always have this funny feeling that she never really left, as strong as her presence still is. It takes a poet of your talent to tame her with verse... good 'un...

Such a grim thing to remember but you did it well Karla and remember we must!Especially if we ever hope to see it rebuilt! It's such a tragedy we are still feeling,and more happening on top of it. We musn't forget to pray...

It is unthinkable that parts of New Orleans and the American South still lay in ruins nearly two years later. Something should have been done a lot sooner to help those poor people rebuild; such a shame! Powerful write; we must not forget!! Thanks!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :(
