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

I Talk to the Trees

When I could use
that little bit of something
I talk to the trees
Their hushed reply
floats by 
 in the breeze
 to nourish my needs

In a Blue Mist

So faintly I could see
a small stand of trees
in the field before me

Be Amazed

I didn't have time
to look at the sky
didn't stop and gaze
and be amazed
Age
set time free
not just to look
but to see

Silent Whispers

I could see it I could feel it
I could hear
its silent whispers

Photography has reawakened
my love
of wintering trees

Faded Beauty

By a tiny old window
tattered and torn
Sits a flower made of sunshine
now tired and worn

Paths

Our paths are uncertain
they climb and they wind
Where will they take us
what futures will they find

Very quirky Very tiny
State Park
that doesn't even have a name
Always fun exploring
new places

A Magical Place

In a canyon not far from home
lives a little rainforest
where fairies and tree sprites roam

Solitude

There's a reason I seek out peace
  quiet solitude
and to be surrounded by nature
Child abuse not only steals our childhoods
but our very lives as well
I am a survivor
it isn't always easy

Afternoon at the Lake

Watching someone fish
 from a small boat
on a quiet lake
is amazingly peaceful

Stillness

In winter thick heavy fogs
often steal visibility
on our mountain roads
Difficult to drive in
but oh so beautiful to photograph

Trees are Forever

Sustaining life
providing shelter
creating endless beauty

slowly rolled in

Dusk

A few ducks flying
 to their nighttime retreat
An otter silently 
slicing through the waters
And I in total awe
Heavenly

An old crumpled up
guardrail
given new life

Wishing All the Best

So many thoughts
of yesteryear
So many tomorrows
yet to come
for our hopes and dreams
to flourish
 
Happy New Year

when the winds calm
and the sky softly darkens

My Favorite Road to Nowhere

It ends abruptly at Nowhere
just over and down the hill
A wondrous place
where tree sprites
come to play

While walking amongst
the sleeping trees
my heart always smiles
when sparkles of green
can be seen

The Calm

Storms are lined up
far out to sea
 transforming the calm
into calamity

what's hidden
by summer green
