Image (c) 2010, Karla Dorman

the crepe myrtle  d
but not nearly as much as
i do in this heat  ----

too hot to do much
of anything except to
stay under a/c ----

have gotten waaaay too
used to creature comforts.  the
flowers have no choice ----

they know fall's coming.
how can something so fragile
be stronger than i?

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (7/21)

Karla, crepe myrtle are among nature's most vibrant and colorful plants. Also one of my personal favorites. And you are so right when you ask how, "how can anything so fragile,be stronger than I"? Stay cool and hydrated you Texas flower. We need you blooming for a long time. May you know only love, peace and joy my dear friend. Jon Michael

Did you ever wonder how a blade of grass presses its way through concrete? A power greater than ourselves. Nice work again, as always Karla. Hope it cools down. We had one week of blinding heat here in LA. Now it's back to gloom.

love the imagery in the poem... :~)
but more than that I love the thought provoking last stanza.

I've missed reading you as I have been away for so long. Hope all is well with you!
