Selected Work
 
campfire embers―
the bright and dark sides
of stories
 
her cupped hands
the rest stop 
of journeying petals
 
 
 
arriving on the farm―
the open arms
of the scarecrow
 
farm shelter―
resting the child 
in scarecrow shadow
 
 
 
burial grounds― 
first into the grave 
our shadows 
 
after the funeral―
slipping into 
father's shoes
