... No corner of my room will escape your careful attention to detail. ....

Image (c) 2008, Karla Dorman

You sweep in
like a massive broom
bent on cleaning:

Poking under the bed,
you raise the dust
of a thousand years 
on the stong back
of a lightning bolt.
You raise your voice
in a cannonade
of thunder and
shake the sheets of
Earth with wind and rain.

You tremble the rugs,
beating them with hail
until they sparkle.
No corner of my room
will escape the
careful attention
to detail:

all will be spotless
when you are through.

And when the air clears,
you rainbow hope
against the sky
and in my eyes.

The air smells sweet.


(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (10/29)

Skillful and fun offering, Karla. I loved the way you got so much motion into this poem. Did you get that cleaning lady's card, I think I could use her once a week.
Take care,

Excellent technique and the multiple ways of interpreting leave the reader wondering and surmising in the best possible fashion.

You import such depth of word meaning into all your poetry - marvelous!!

A fabulous array of interpretations accompany this clean sweep, Karla... could be Spring, could be the next Perfect Storm, could be the ridding of germs through fever... unless it's my mind that's over heating! :)) Your images are always sharp and clear. It's true - you need to publish your unique, Stormspinning takes. You always create a clean air around your work. Good one! xx

Reviewed by Elizabeth Russo 10/29/2008
I love your opening; catches your attention and holds you there. I also like your personification of the storm, even though I don't read this as a literal storm, but more metaphorically for a stormy relationship (but that's just me). Clever piece, well done! Best, Elizabeth

It does always amaze me that after a storm things seem almost revitalized and fresh again as if thrown in a clothes washer and spun out. Good write Karla.

Yes, love it, don't fear a little sabel rasling from the skies, after all you are a Veteran and not allergic to a few shots with blancks.
