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

Winter Dreams

Of warmer days
and sunshine
on my face

I'll sit with the trees
and talk with my brother
of things great and small
of wishes and dreams
of life
Barry was lost to the Vietnam war
over 40 years ago
but he hears my every word
as I hear his

In a Soft Light

Evening light varies in mood
and mystery
It takes on the day's colors
and makes them its own

Logging trains once
road these rails
now they are no more
only their ghosts remain
