cottonwood seed--
first one, then another,

—Amy Hartl Sherman

About the author: A midwesterner through and through, I live in Glen Ellyn, Illinois with my husband, two sons, and three unruly dogs. A few of my haiku have been published in The Heron's Nest, Modern Haiku and the Illinois Times. An example of a non-haiku poem may be found online at FZQ (Free Zone Quarterly). Email:
