Selected Work
 
leaves are falling
the circle of life and death
undertaker crows
 
honeysuckle grows
around the arch of midnight
into the wormhole
 
 
 
a trodden nettle
still offers herself to bees
and us to make tea
 
curious magpies
search ploughed field for baubles
sunlight glints on them
 
 
 
cherry blossoms bloom
then fall in wind and rain on
human chameleons
 
red chrysanthemums
show fractals of clarity
time sows mutations
