Selected Work
new moon
with or without us
the cereus blooms
ground fog
three crows
hop cloud to cloud
longest day of the year
a snail's shadow
fills the afternoon
parent teacher day
the class turtle 
fends for himself
hazy moon
in a starry night
our conundrum
winter solitude
another long night
where things left off
