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

Where the Petals Fall

The slightest breeze
and down they fell
still so vibrant
in pinks and white
these peony petals
now sprinkled on the ground

In the Wild

Brightening up the forest
Heavenly scented honeysuckle

Mt St Helens on Her Anniversary

On May 18, 1980 
Mt St Helens violently erupted
We live in her shadow
and in an unexplainable way
made her our own

and you just might hear
tales told in soft whispers
of fairies pixies and sprites
who come play on their petals
and take shelter from
 afternoon rains

Not just in passing

with a worn and tired gate
It sits now unused
as it slowly
fades away
