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

Of mystery and wonder
and the wanting
of their unknown

Reaching for the sky
asking why
peace
seems so elusively
out of reach

in the all of nature
or a single daisy

and warms my soul
with gladness

Found

One tiny little

will keep safely tucked
under my pillow
until owner is found
I can even stitch it back on
for you

For the senseless loss

Elusively
giving light to shadow

A Warm Welcome

On an outstretched tree
downed by the eruption
of Mt St Helens
a lone Jay sits
singing his morning song

The slightest breeze

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

there are Rhododendrons
bursting with color
So numerous
their charm and beauty
often get
lost in the crowd
