My editor's choice for the September edition of cattails is
this extraordinary sumi-e by Joyce Joslin Lorenson, USA. Looking at it over and over, I see a bird, or is it a leaf,
or both? The ambiguity and intricacy of this piece makes it a virtual masterpiece imho. Not only is the artwork
excellent, but the haiku is extremely well written and pivots unconventionally but wonderfully. This author/artist
is to be commended, congratulations to Joyce and thank you for sharing this with cattails viewers.
