Prayer #Poetry #Tuesday Tidbit

The following poem was published in Mingled Voices 4: ProversePoetry Prize Anthology 2019. This is an acrostic poem, which means the first letter of each line spells a word. I wrote it in response to a prompt from one of my groups to write a prayer poem. You can click on the Play button below the poem to hear me read it. Enjoy!


PRAYER (an acrostic)


Please, if you can hear me,
Reach out to my loved ones in your realm.
Assure them I still love them.
Young at heart, I still think about them,
Every day, every night, every season,
Remember that we’ll someday be together.

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.
