Open Door Publications will publish its first book of poetry in October. When We Were Perfect, poems by Dayle Herstik, are about laughter and sadness and the joys of the simple things in life – an icecream cone in June, a walk with a grandchild. Dayle describes her poems as “snapshots in time” that follow her life from a young mother to a grandmotherhood.

of summer sun.

A prelude to a glowing afternoon.
Sunsets ablaze with hot orange.
I, and the rose
