Selected Work
The deer sniffs, seeking
Me, perplexed. Invisible,
I am like a ghost.
The octopus flashed
Calm blue and brown, teasing me
Like a fan dancer.
The storm is brewing
Darkly in the western sky.
Now, time to be brave.
Pulse pounding, sweating,
I dig in my pocket for
The engagement ring.
The ripe tomato
Willingly twists off the vine
Mother's burden gone
The ruffian wind
Elbows through dogwoods leaving
Drifts of white petals
