Selected Work
 
Slight breeze—
a field of dewdrops
blinking dawn.
 
Dozing off,
the sound of rain--waking up,
silent snowfall.
 
 
 
After the first freeze--
aiming at the cloudy sky
a new garlic shoot.
 
Cicada cries
swelling and fading--
smell of squash leaves.
 
 
 
My exhaled breath
absorbed by fog--
the waning moon.
 
morning coffee--
the dog snaps
at a fly.
