Seeing Harmony

by A.J. Huffman 

Waves waver between blue and green,
roll into amalgamation of aqua, marine
life glinting before moments of eruptive
crash.  Foam trickles into tentacles
of welcome, recoils with retrieved bits,
shells and crabs.  Seaweed takes
a breather, stretches across tanning sand
with no worries.  Reclamation is inevitable.
The soothing cycle of sun and moon ensure
consumptive risings, echoing retreats.

A.J. Huffman has published eleven solo chapbooks and one joint chapbook through various small presses. Her new poetry collections, Another Blood Jet (Eldritch Press) and A Few Bullets Short of Home (mgv2>publishing) are now available from their respective publishers.   She has two additional poetry collections forthcoming: Degeneration from Pink Girl Ink, and A Bizarre Burning of Bees from Transcendent Zero Press.  She is a three-time Pushcart Prize nominee, and has published over 2200 poems in various national and international journals, including Labletter, The James Dickey Review, Bone Orchard, EgoPHobia, and Kritya. She is also the founding editor of Kind of a Hurricane Press.
