at the edge
of a moonbeam
a whippoorwill's cry

second place in Moonset's 2007 annual contest


stars I thought I made up
in childhood

Frogpond 2012


a wingtip
grazes the deepening dusk
untended grave

kernels 2012


fogged mirror almost remembering thirty

kernels 2012



breaking wave pale in the moonlight his legs engulf me 

Under the Basho 2013



sheep in the road...
where were you last night
when I needed you?


creation’s song
in the bird’s belly…
new dawn


the ancient secrets
of a purple sky
