Selected Work
 
fading light . . .
alone with the cry
of a cicada
 
sound of adhan
over the city limit
a yellow butterfly
 
 
 
hunger moon
the long shadow
of this world
 
bitter wind
a refugee kid
feeds the crows
 
 
 
billowing clouds 
under a blooming water lily
a koi
 
mother’s tombstone
emerges from the fallen leaves
a cicada
