Selected Work
a ray of sunshine 
on its way to darkness—
mole's fur
under the cherry tree 
a young girl's black hair
karst terrain 
a road through vastness—
bleating only...
an open window
the stars peering
into my dreams
the moon waited
for the light to be switched off
entering my room
rain ended 
a sparrow bathes
in the hoof's track
