Selected Work
mackerel sky
the fishing boat tugs  
at its mooring
leaden sky 
the broodmare’s feed bin
heavy with rain
moonless night
depths of darkness 
lapping the pier
winter sunset
a spill of merlot
on the bench
bleak morning
her footprints  
filled with rain
winter moon
alone in a churchyard 
of stone angels
