Late night (well, actually, early, early morning) musings ...

Red, ripe fruits, suddenly rare,
due to salmonella scare ---
we have all been put under
tomato warnings.  Thunder
no longer appears so bad:
no BLTs makes me sad.
Persistence does not include
the weather, unless it's summer ---
heat and humidity is
the norm, the same old same bummer
of a pattern, day after
day --- maybe for variety
a pop-up thunderstorm --- or
maybe not.  Texas weather --- wheee!
die, bug.  stop buzzing in
my ear!  ev'ry time my
hand draws near, off you go
until the next pass 'round
my head.  i want you gone,
i want you dead.  you are
getting on my last nerve ...
... Will it storm tonight, or just
tease us?  Storms to the North
may or may not approach.  This
is what gets me, the uncertainty of
yes/no/perhaps.  Somebody will get
the forecast right.  Just don't know who.
One hundred twenty eight
(probably less, by now)
minus twenty, maybe forty
(if lucky) reviews equals
a lot less than trackers, tracking ---
doesn't add up.  Totally bumfuzzled.
(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (6/14)

You want bugs... zzzzzzzzz Come here, to the Ocala National Forest in Florida. I have spiders the size of ping-pong balls on my porch! and Deer Flies that look like flying clothes pins (bite is vicious!) but speaking of Wx: seems less flies this year than last due to the drought here I'm guessing. I don't mind. Bugs I got, but trackers few! You're lucky... mine 128-105...Later, michael

We all have those pet "buggy" peeves. When I see your but on the screen, it reminds me of the gnats that find their way into my kitchen and everytime I eat, here comes that pesky gnat. Oh well....

I have asked the person sitting next to me in the library to help me wipe the insect off the screen but he couldn´t! wonderful poem with deeply meaningful verses. A pleasure to read you dear sister and friend in America.

My dear ever so faithful reviewer Karen! Insomnia has me carefully going through my reviews and noticing without a beat your hand is always in the pot -- stirring encouragment and praise, baking batches of care. Tomatoes are my favorite~! I think I'll take the chance and eat em anyway! Well Done! Deborah

Karla, I loved these...and do you know when my screen opened to your poetry page, I thought that little ant crawling around was on my actual screen! Very cute!
