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)

|Even poetry can show the devastation of a storem....yours excells within a few words and thoughts the immensity of this.....
|Reviewed by Kathryn Collins
This may be my favorite of yours so far.
The wet, how it burned!

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.|

|Wow.. well done Karla..

|Reviewed by Georg Mateos
|I wish to know what the politicians are saying in the Deep South in these days of Presidential Campaigning.

Gimme a break!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

|you have expressed well the terrible many faces of the destruction of Katrina|

|You bring out the pain that is still so very much alive. So many lives disruped and changed forever......

|This was a great piece of poetry to view!|

|Katrina has shown the world another side to America...|
|Reviewed by Walt Hardester
|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.
|Reviewed by Joyce Bowling
|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!
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|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.
|Reviewed by Missy Cross
|"the big mamajama that
outbadded them all"...
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...
|Reviewed by Rose Rideout
|Karla, it is something that will never be forgotten, such a shame for the beauty lost. |Thank you for sharing.
|Reviewed by D Johnson
|And may we not forget that Katrina was followed on it's heals by Rita which exasterbated the problems, and the struggle remains.

|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...
|Reviewed by Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado
|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. :(

|It is incredible that a beautiful city has not been rebuilt. Victor|
