Selected Work
Tracing the contours
of mountains
my mind wanders
The mockingbird protects his berries
bush 		tree
bush 		tree	
bush 		tree
A moth hole 
in my sweater
makes room for moonlight
Old dog on the couch
future empty spot—
the tv flickers
Alfalfa blossoms
nod in the evening wind—
time of the deer
in a clay bowl
gibbous moons
