W is for WOWSER -- A Giveaway!


a Rafflecopter giveaway


Well, today on the A to Z Challenge, we have reached the letter "W" and are nearing the end of April. 

To celebrate gaining over 20,000 hits on my blog AND to say thank you to you, dear readers, I'm offering one paperback copy of The Mermaid Quilt. This is an experiment. I've never used Rafflecopter before. This raffle program is free and supposedly easy. Enter, and if you win, I will alert you by e-mail and snail-mail you my book.

But this doesn't mean we're off the hook for a poem for "W". Here's today's effort.

What? You want to WIN?
Wasn't it enough that spring has finally
shaken winter cold from your bones?
That violets bloom purple-red and pink?
That cherry blossoms now pull
birds from the sky with promises
not yet kept?
Even I, standing to the side,
straightening my glasses in sun's glare,
all too aware of the season's turn,
would like that sweet moment of heart's ease.

Read what others have written for NaPoWriMo and A to Z Challenge.

So I'm really curious. Did you enter the contest?
