leaves and frost cover brown ground
substitute for snow
ice particles in creek bed
while water babbles
Note: The above haiku were recently published in The Weekly Avocet. I was inspired to write them while taking a walk and noticing leaves covering the ground instead of snow and the frozen creek bed. You can click below to hear me read them.

New! The Red Dress
Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books
When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

Well, it’s not Tuesday, but a great post just the same.
actually, according to Alexa, today is Tuesday. If she’s wrong, then we both have dementia. LOL!
There seems to be a scheduling issue with WordPress. My Wednesday Words post went live primaturely. I’ve moved it to drafts and will try to reschedule it for tomorrow or publish it again first thing in the morning. I’m sorry for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.
I had a similar issue with next Monday’s music feature, which I tried to schedule yesterday. This is why I say that technology is like a spouse. You can’t live with it; you can’t live without it.
