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

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
