Selected Work
first light the yellows in the lark's song
dandelion field
the summer wind casts
a thousand wishes
abandoned greenhouse
inside and out
skinny dipping
the pull of the moon
in your voice
the groundhog's shadow
white where there shouldn't be
on her mammogram
neighborhood gossip
from blossom to blossom
honey bees
