Selected Work
paddy field by the river
the voice of a farmer
speaking to the bulls
evening breeze
hundreds of lamp flames
sway in the temple
red butterfly
a little girl switches off
the class room fans
moonlit hills...
I bow to step out
of the hut
blue sea
the paper kite rises
again from the sand
scent of jasmine
the night watchman 
starts to whistle
