Selected Work
shop window
today's special offer
a rainbow
cuckoo's cry
in his thin wallet
borrowed money
flea market
louder than huckster
a nearby crow
library visit
among a pile of books
I find a boy's laughter
heavy truck
delivered into the village
an evening downpour
moon in veils
a tiny street lamp
shines for them both
