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

with slender trees reaching 
 high in search of sunlight

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
set time free
not just to look
but to see

I could hear
its silent whispers

The Beauty of Slumbering Trees

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

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

A Magical Place

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

 Mt St Helens

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

Monday, January 12


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