complexity of wearing anklets

so I lost an anklet today, silver with tinkling bells
maa, you bought the pair for me when I started to work
it was your gift to me for start of a new innings

I wore the pair everywhere for so long
and one fine day, I took it off for reasons forgotten
no tinkling and life was uncomplicated

when I found those again a few weeks back
my elation knew no bounds and yours was so transparent
I danced around that day, just for that tinkling sound

"maa, you found the lost one under my bed, am I glad my life is hunky dory yet again"

Hi,

Hope you had a nice Easter weekend!

I wanted to follow up with you on Bridges: A Daphne White Novel (Wink’s Ink, April 2017), from best-selling author of the Waverly Bryson series, Maria Murnane. Would you be interested in reviewing?

Bridges: A Daphne White Novel hits all the right high and low points of a long-term friendship between three complex women. Conflicts arise in a realistic fashion and the results are satisfying to watch unfold. The characters initially come across as stereotypical archetypes, but each turns out to have surprising depth. This follow-up to Wait for the Rain is short and sweet, and like a weekend spent with your best gal pals, is over far too soon.
--Mary Bennings, RT Book Reviews

Murnane's latest novel is the second in her Daphne White series (not required to read the first). Bridges centers on struggling novelist Daphne White who never thought she'd see the day when her globe-trotting friend Skylar would settle down and get engaged. Along with their friend KC, the fun-loving trio come together for a weekend in New York City to celebrate. As the trip unfolds, truths about each woman emerge, along with tears. And laughter. And love. Here’s to the power of friendship!
