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

High on a Hillside

Beauty is everywhere
 even in clear cuts... timber is a necessity
Little sanctuaries always remain
for the birdies and the bees
 and the temporary meadows that surround them
are always replanted

Then Came a Rainbow

As I sat high on a ridge
where wildflowers grew in the still heavy ash
    the valley floor looming
so far below
   and a storm brewing over Mt St Helens
I watched with childhood excitement
a rainbow blooming

sunny and kind
