Selected Work
 
chilly morning—
geese in formation
over the Dart line
 
warm rain—
lily pads surrendering
to watery graves
 
 
 
depth of winter—
a train’s headlights glowing
in the half-light
 
heatwave—
two lighthouses exchange
hazy flashes
 
 
 
September sunset—
fiery fuchsia nestles
in hedgerows
 
acacia leaves
the golden touch
of evening light
