Selected Work
cold enough now
for an evening fire . . .
rosehips hang in the kitchen
wild March wind
rain on the tin roof
turns to sleet
apple blossoms—
in the dowser’s hands
a forked branch quivers
sax sound
crossing the intervale
spring storm
tai chi at dawn
hermit pine and i
summer wind
this way and that
seagull tracks
mapping wet sand
