Sample piece from Shadows Bloom

Haiku

crow's mechanical call
I flavour my tea
with raindrops

guth meicniúil an phréacháin
cuirim blas ar an tae
le deora báistí

the fishmonger
arranges her fish
faces them seawards

socraíonn an mangaire
na héisc
is a n-aghaidh ar muir

daffodils
rot in the vase
their shadows bloom

lobhann lusanna an chromchinn
sa vása
scáthanna faoi bhláth
