My life in equal quarters: Switzerland, where I was born and grew up. Sri Lanka, where our three sons were born. Zambia (Africa), where I experienced the rhythm and pull of the center of the earth. Phoenix, Arizona, where roots that have so often been pulled up now find nourishment beneath the desert I love.

Selected Work
into the sun
where eyes can't follow
a red-tailed hawk
crimson sunset
coyotes melt
into the desert wash
such silence -
an osprey's nest
sunk in snow
darkening sky -
a woman's song rises
on the desert breeze
winter solstice
mist rises to a flight
of pelicans
an armful of lilies
 in the fullness of summer
 an urn full of ash
