Selected Work
 
no moon . . .
the sound of leaves
catching rain
 
amber light
the time it takes
a leaf to fall
 
 
 
planting the garden—
what to do with the rest
of my life
 
a length of rope
knotted with seaweed—
pull of the tide
 
 
 
dry river bed
a fawn licks the colour
from a rock
 
he photographs
what he can’t take home
sunlight on water
