a coyote call
goes unanswered
evening star
snow flurries
candlelight moving
window to window
pawn shop
a runaway's face
in the glass
by the window
blossoms fall
affixing the bonnet
to the coach horse
rain falling
from a stone griffin
one red umbrella
Mennonite woman
shaking out a blanket
first apple blossoms
clouded dawn
strangers mill about
the public garden
summer's end
waves disappear
beneath the pier
mountain shadow
river water runs
through my fingers
