Selected Work
 
sun-blaze
a hand on head
salutes
 
from the rabbit hole
burrowing through barricades
an indweller’s path
 
 
 
sandcastles
casting weight on littoral
puny pillars
 
long view
pining through the forest
inside out
 
 
 
night music
jamming to the 'wakeshift'
stridulations
 
vox populi croaks
through my staycation window
green revolution
