Selected Work
 
morning light
our peacoats hanging
side by side
 
first snowfall
after his memorial
the sound of crows
 
 
 
coming home
to no new messages
lingering rain
 
disappearing
everywhere I go
ghost moon
 
 
 
gray clouds
the stumbling wasp
in a conifer
 
home alone
a friend calls me
by accident
