Silvered Trees

Leafless tree under gray sky

Poem by Duane L. Herrmann

Duane L. Herrmann, internationally published, award-winning poet and historian, has seven collections of poetry and a sci fi novel: Escape from Earth. His poetry has received the Robert Hayden Poetry Fellowship, inclusion in American Poets of the 1990s, the Map of Kansas Literature (website), Kansas Poets Trail and others. He spends time in and writes about trees, moonlight, and the breeze. These accomplishments defy his traumatic childhood embellished by dyslexia, ADHD and, now, PTSD. He’s still learning to be human and breathe at the same time.
