Selected Work
all night
the snow adding                           
to itself
breakfast together                      
the silence about things                
that matter
feeling a chill―                        
the scarlet maple                        
spills out of itself
in the garden
that was her life...
wings folded                     
hawks and doves                        
share the sunset
winter rain                                                         
one flowered umbrella                                
at the funeral
