Selected Work
frigid night—
the bowl of soup
becomes my universe
neither the rosebush
nor blue sky cheer me today,
but the bird's song...
sunrise songs
birds drinking
the light
clock sprung ahead
lunch tastes
the same
months after the blossoms:
i remember to notice
the cherry tree
rain doesn’t stop
the cardinal from April
