blush of dusk
on the lake-
goose wings slap the surface

—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:

    in the storm
    a solitary jogger
    runs barefoot

    summer in September

    dove wings clap
    rising to greet the dawn ...
    jog round the neighborhood

    full of promises
    a flock of robins
    twitting outside window

    dawns chill--
    starry sky beneath rippling mirrored lake
    as roosters cry
