Selected Work
flowering quince―
a crow shakes off
flurries of snow
drifting smoke 
the shape of
my heart
monsoon cloud—
two neighbours by the fence 
chat about Palestine
morning dew 
filling the emptiness 
of a fallen leaf
King fisher 
glides to roost—
dusk over the ocean
over a bowl 
of pepper soup—
the winter moon
