Selected Work
 
Winter slips away
on a sheet of ice –
mist covers the buds
 
the wingtips
of whooping cranes
black ink in my nib
 
 
 
a bride at sixteen green apples
 
sheets of rain
a sunflower
on your damp postcard
 
 
 
wedding quilt
contrasting squares
patched up
 
mistletoe –
we kiss under a plant
that kills its host
