Selected Work
 
spring breeze
in the schoolyard with its nose bent
a paper airplane
 
the old rose bloomed again―
grandpa tries on
tango shoes
 
 
 
only the wind whistling
from time to time―
abandoned train station
 
wall calendar―
every day
I travel in Japan
 
 
 
summer thunder―
only her baby doll
with open eyes 
 
moon's sickle―
my cat sharpens
it's claws
