Cries lost on the wind

My book is late. It's a long, sad story, but it will be available at http://www.murderasacalltolove.com soon. Actually the website is up and running, and I'm blogging there. In the meantime, on this rainy morning, found this haiku buried in one of my husband, Philip's emails. He is so talented, and this is exactly how I feel this today:



Still ochred oak leaves

Late autumn so persistent
