Selected Work
green tea leaf 
on the bottom of a cup
a chinese dragon
an earthquake - 
in the day care's rubble
a lego tower
low tide - 
the lighthouse's shadow
covered by a wave
night pond—
the Big Dipper full
of leaves
through the doors
of an umbrella store
dandelion seeds
forest covered by snow
between the tree
the last ray of sun
