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


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
