Haiku by A.J. Huffman

Diana's eye blinks
as she hunts alone
in night's unruffled expanse.

Moon rises
against midnight surf.  Skyline erupts
in mirrored brilliance.

An astronaut's dreams:
to float in airless orbit,
walk on powdered form.

Cycle complete.  Full moon
calls my inner nature.
I howl at the wind.

Huffman has published twelve full-length poetry collections, thirteen solo poetry chapbooks and one joint poetry chapbook through various small presses.  Her most recent releases, Degeneration (Pink Girl Ink), A Bizarre Burning of Bees (Transcendent Zero Press), and Familiar Illusions (Flutter Press) are now available from their respective publishers.  She is a five-time Pushcart Prize nominee, a two-time Best of Net nominee, and has published over 2500 poems in various national and international journals, including Labletter, The James Dickey Review, The Bookends Review, Bone Orchard, Corvus Review, EgoPHobia, and Kritya.  She is also the founding editor of Kind of a Hurricane Press.
