Flowers Bring Hope #Poetry #Tuesday Tidbit

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

Arrow leaf, balsam root

Blanket the hillside

near a pristine lake,

bring hope of spring

soon to come,

an end to brutal winter.

Warm temperatures

around the corner

melt snow, clear ice.

A new beginning

will shortly arrive,

end nature’s tyranny,

but even in June,

snow dots mountaintops,

as winter holds on.

Meanwhile, in the valleys,

spring has arrived

with lupine, hope.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

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.

  1. I live in that valley – soon I will be walking the deer path and looking for the May Apples and in June the woods is alive with blue, purple, and pink flowers – it’s a wonderland in the woodlands every month of the year. Each season brings something new to appreciate. Congrats on getting your poem in the Weekly Avocet, Abbie.
