Selected Work
green lawn-mower―
awaits the gardener
nesting pigeons
crawling through the weight a baby snail
pale dawn
cries of peacocks
unfurl the sky
drawing cranes
with grandson―
my walking stick
ghost home―
memories of the guava tree
still linger
row of candles
outside the temple―
the light within
