Selected Work
 
September garden
patina of old pennies
in the fountain
 
reaching that certain age
the pink rose petal just
beginning to curl
 
 
 
veiled moon
longing for something
I cannot name
 
broken resolutions—
icicles
returning to rain
 
 
 
sun's warmth
a slight scent of apples
poached from the trees
 
family plot
the comfort of knowing
my place
