Selected Work
 
cluster of crows
rising and falling above the treeline
a dance of omens
 
coffee bean clusters
growing in the california sun
soon, a better season
 
 
 
embers rise from this
dying fire to meet a roaring
quickening dawn
 
ribbon of bright light
the struggle and spreading of
this hopeful spring dawn
 
 
 
star shaped crackers
my son's mouth full of
crumbling constellations
 
spiralling, rising
blossoms on a resurrected
breeze
