Selected Work
 
the wiggle
of a bee's behind--
cherry blossom
 
rusted eaves
the crow struts
anyway
 
 
 
just enough
for one full breath...
honeysuckle breeze
 
climate change--
his small hands cradle
grandma's snowglobe
 
 
 
almost sundown
the day lengthens
car by car
 
red mittens
her laughter ahead
of the snowball
