|Powerful, indeed. Dreadfully sorrowful, horribly painful, and reverberating with righteous anger, yet it is possible to take a certain measure of solace in the skill with which you get these things across. May the future be brighter for you and your loved ones...for all who have suffered devastating losses. Peace and Godspeed, Phyllis|

|Poet, your powerful words flow across the page just as rapidly as Katrina helped to destroy over 90,000 square miles of land in the Gulf region of the United States. Hopefully our federal government will finally bring the urgent relief in sufficient quantities that need to be delivered throughout this affected region without all the excuses they’ve come up with since Katrina hit our sacred, southern shores. It’s not like they didn’t know it was coming! Excellent work. Thank you for sharing it. Take good care and be well.|

|excellent poem on a tragic event ...|
|Reviewed by George Carroll
|Many warnings were given yet so many did not heed them and now we grieve for them. These type of disasters bring out the best and worst in people. Before we forget it, we are still in the middle of the hurricane season and more may be in the offering for those left destitute by Katrina. I pray this never comes to pass.|

|What a perfect poem this is Huda! You have captured the meaning and the depth of emotion that this terrible event evokes.Beautifully done!
|Reviewed by Sherry Heim
|Your words remind us that nature is a force much greater than man and once her decision is made there is nothing we can say or do to stop her. The loss of life and property is so very sad and overwhelming, but to look objectively at the power that nature possesses and can exhibit, it is truly amazing and mind-boggling. This is an excellent poem and in building it's foundation from another strong, related poem, through symbolism, you show how life goes on, even through tragedy and adversity.

|Katrina is a powerful reminder of the awesome force that is nature and how small we are compared to her. This poem is a blend of the gentle and the terrible and thus very effective. Thank you for sharing your gift, Huda. May it rise as prayer for relief for all of the victims. Love and peace to you.
