Selected Work
the words
on the tip of my tongue
dandelion seeds
Milky Way
the numerical perfection
of a snail’s shell
wild rhubarb
that sudden yearning
for something more
scent of wind
a lizard steps out
of its old skin
after the squall
the tinkling concerto
of sailboats
endless sky…
we follow the twinkle
of fireflies
