Selected Work
 
dawn silhouette inside my falling dream my flying dream
 
skinny dipping
my sister leads me into
my fiftieth year
 
 
 
low tide
in the gull's footprints
echoes of flight
 
still water
the heron's twin
head in the clouds
 
 
 
my father's country
each year he goes home
for the last time
 
suicide bomber
the computer generates
a human face
