... scent ears with hope ...

Image (c) 2005, Karla Dorman


Who would think the sun would
be so beautiful?  Part of the sky
fell, ripped from the trees, left to
sparkle greenly on my eyes ... .

could have been worse.  Others
to the south, east, north are not
as fortunate:  all we lost were a
few leaves.  They lost all, all but

their lives:  buzzing of chainsaw
and thundering hammers scent
ears with hope as they rebuild -
a strong, resilient sound as the

sun rises on the morning after
the tornadoes.  It feels so good.

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (4/11)

Karla,
The storms in the Dallas area were awful, but there's one thing about it: The Lord always grants the ones affected by natural disasters the chance to start over and many more times than not, the first step is seeing the sun, the day after, and realizing that life continues. There's a lot of hope to continue, once that vision is seen.

Nice work, using a different style than I'm used to seeing from you.
