Selected Work
chinese new year
chasing a dragon tail—
the moon
fireworks fade
a single firefly
continues the show
Spring cleaning
An old love letter
Tucked in a drawer
indian summer
tears wash out to sea
with a toy sail boat
full moon—
so many vines
on the banyan tree
white Christmas—
along the road home
drifts of cotton
