Jerome Berglund & Christina Chin

off shoulder 

loose light lace 

summer morning


    bright yellow hopping

    through budding leaves


Christina Chin

         & Jerome Berglund



gusts of wind

spin the dreamcatchers

falling blossom petals


    clog the grating

    begin to fester


Christina Chin

         & Jerome Berglund



intertidal 

the scrap of rakes

shellfish collection on the beach

 

tents and strewn trash

after surprise raid

 

Christina Chin

         & Jerome Berglund

 

 

early spring

the mellifluous reedlings 

court on the branch 

 

puppy love and

running makeup 

 

Christina Chin

         & Jerome Berglund
