A haiku & upcoming publications

Moth’s thrumming orbit—
this hummingbird of evening
pollinates the dark

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:

  • The Northern Colorado Writers Anthology, winner of the Colorado Book award in 2019. This year’s publication is titled Chirascuro: An Anthology of Virtue and Vice.
  • 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.
