Selected Work
spring gust
the dress of the bride
bellies out
this year again
autumn arrived—on my hand
a little brown spot
migrating birds
my husband bids them goodbye
as to our sons
Perseid shower
I fall
with every star
planting flowers
on the family grave
strong roots
unexplored world 
from behind the neighbor’s fence 
a cosmos
