New poem: ‘A Shooting Star’ in Eye to the Telescope

Screen Shot 2018-10-30 at 9.41.31 PMThank you to editor Colleen Anderson and Eye to the Telescope for publishing my haiku in Eye to the Telescope Issue 29: The Dark.  If you click on the link, you can scroll to the end to read it. The poem is much shorter than even this blog post.

The poem, by the way, was written during my stay at an artist residency in Cadaqués, Spain. So thank you to Catherine and Sergio for making the new poem possible!
