Selected Work
winter night― 
the kami of the forest never rest
they are back―
pink flamingos in the salt pans
wisteria in bloom―
the scent of my mother on the skin
rapeseed flowers caressed by the wind― 
the white clouds
September 11th―
The embrace of the world in a single cry
new masks
on overused faces―
the carnival
