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

Parts and Pieces

In the bed of an old pickup
were parts and pieces
of another old vehicle
very neatly stacked
The late afternoon sun 
added intrigue
~
I've been quite ill of late
nothing serious
Hoping to get back to my normal routines soon

Smoothed by the Tides

Along the Columbia River
where there's a great deal
of tidal activity

Flyby

Not a sound 
flutter or ripple
here then gone
   Just saying hi 
on the fly

Chasing Sunsets

And every once in a while
every now and then
I catch one

Somewhere

I turned
and there I saw
a fleeting rainbow
glistening in the wee bit of sunlight
Made me smile
like a child
from ear to ear

Stormy Day

The heavy rains let up
 as the sun found a tiny opening between clouds
to burst through
only to withdraw 
as the wild rains quickly returned 
along the Columbia River

Quietly Waiting

In dormancy
patiently waiting
for Spring

Winter Skies

Clouds
forever hide the skies
here in winter
So when the clouds part
even briefly
we rejoice

simple blessings

no time to really see 
Now 
I cannot but see
the magnificence of 
the ever changing light

Hidden Hollow

Up a road that follows a creek
there is a hollow
hidden from sight
and little known
The light is mystical and forever changing
with the weather
and time of day
I love it there as
it seems to have an energy
 all its own

In the Stillness

With Mt St Helens shining snowy bright
the wetlands sit quiet
taking its long winter's nap

Mt St Helens Dressed in White

Yes, there are other mountains 
but
this one is
on the mend
Yes, for the next 200 years or so
but
I'm here now
and now is when
I fell in love
with this beautiful mountain
on the mend

Caught in a Fog

I love sunsets
they can differ so from day to day
from moment to moment
From pinks and blues
to a golden glow
encased in a fog

you're so out of place
and on your own
  in a world of snowy cold

Muted light
on a snowy day
Creating beauty
in shades of gray
