Selected Work
Ah, hydrangea!
Who will water you
when I leave him?
Relatives have left
Only one white feather
in the chicken house
Snow-covered road
Why am I undoing my hair
and making tea again?
A danger sign flying
along the road
Market rinsing
The smell of a cracked melon
late at night
Frosty night
A red rose looks at me
from graphite
