I am honored that the Illinois State Poetry Society has celebrated this poem in its Traditional Haiku competition, and I offer many thanks to this group from my home state. I must admit, I miss the vibrant writing scene and the fantastic writers of Illinois, but not the long winters!
I am also happy to announce that I have poetry forthcoming in the following publications:
Spit Poet Zine, an independent voice in Colorado publishing. Past issues of the print publication are available digitally online.
MiddleCreek Publishing, in their anthology titled The Mountain. MiddleCreek recently published the poetry chapbooks Hush by Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, and Cirque and Sky by Kathleen Willard, which I highly recommend.
