Video (c) 2008, Karla Dorman

And ya gotta wait 'til the finale! =]

... Repeating the sounding joy, the
City's annual Christmas tradition:
parade.  Tree lighting.  Fireworks!

Camera batteries all charged; hope
to get some good video.  Let's see
if I can be an events reporter or not.

The sky explodes in vivid color
again and again.  Rising smoke
backlit by all hues of the rainbow.

The sound resonates through my
soul, connecting mine with Daddy's,
who would have loved to be here.

He loved nightfire in the sky and
gave that love to his twin daughters.
I pass this on to you as my Gift ...

Merry Christmas.  =]

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (12/7)

Karla, your words remind me of me after my father died. Even in moments of pleasure and joy, my mind would turn to him. Merry Christmas to you and many blessings of hope and faith.

Reviewed by Felix Perry
Yes the sights and the sounds of the festive season are so sensitive to hearts that love, or have known and lost love, whether it be lovers or close family. Well done and I am sure your father would approve.

Daddy lives on in us, and he was definitely with us last night during the boom-booms! Very well captured excitement in video and verse; glad I was there with ya! BRAVA!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your BUGLE-mouthed twin, Karen Lynn. :D *Woo-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!* LOL

Don't be so sure that your Dad isn't there with you, because he is!

Very good Karla. You know, your Daddy's got the best seat in the house. Wish I were with him as a matter of fact. Couldn't ask for a better place to celebrate. When we lose a loved one, we mourn for ourselves. What we should do is celebrate their blessings and be glad; for it is they who are the fortunate ones. God bless you my friend.
