By Dianne Moritz
You go along in life, putting the pieces together, one by one. Like a jigsaw puzzle, sometimes they fit snuggly: bird on a nest, sweet peas on a trellis. Then, just when you think you’re ready for the next piece, you lose it under the tablecloth or discover it’s all wrong...cloud cover instead of shining sun; rounded corners instead of square. You need firm ground, only to find a slippery slope. Yet, always you desire roses without thorns. Love, not war. The biggest problem comes when you’re almost finished. There’s no escaping that last bit...it’s there, waiting for final placement.
Dianne writes poetry and picture books for children. Her next book, GOING ON A GHOST HUNT, will be out the fall of 2022.
