Requiem for a Mismatched Pair of Socks
You insidious unpaired defiant wretches
Unaccustomed to the other
Patterns in heated dispute
Yet emerging as if wed
Once each of you were holy partnered
Right and left together properly bedded
Now here you lie
Too unlike the other to become one
Destined to spend unnumbered days
Cast into the catchall grave
Until another purpose unfolds
Hoping for a miraculous reunion
When the lost again is found

Hi Friends! Sorry I haven’t stopped by in a while. But I just couldn’t resist posting this sock poem by fellow author Linda Rondeau.
Obviously, this is a woman who understands the angst of laundry. Good to know we’re not the only ones, eh? But she’s not just a poet. No, sir. She’s got a new book out, and I wanted to share it with you. If you’re a fan of mystery/suspense, you won’t want to miss it. Watch the book trailer here!
The Other Side of Darkness by Linda Wood Rondeau
Haven: a perfect vacation spot filled with mystery and romance except for a killer bent on revenge.
Manhattan prosecutor Samantha Knowlton is stranded in a quirky but intriguing Adirondack town. But she must return to NYC to repair the unraveling case against convicted child killer, Harlan Styles.
Teacher Zack Bordeaux fears he is doomed to a life of mediocrity if he remains in Haven but would be willing to stay if it means a life with Sam.
Landscape artist Jonathan Gladstone feels bound to an estate he both loathes and loves, haunted by the deaths of his wife and son until he falls in love with a spirited attorney and rediscovers his artistic passion.
These three, betrayed and betraying, must find their way from the darkness of broken hope to the light found only in Christ, our surest haven.
Enjoy. Blessings to each of you!
