I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

Broken Fences

Down our short road

It sits now unused
as it slowly
fades away

Where pixies
love to play
then sliding deep into sleep
to dream
of their mellow yellow
