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

Mt St Helens Dressed in White

Yes, there are other mountains 
this one is
on the mend
Yes, for the next 200 years or so
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

With a touch
of rust

Adrift in the Winter Cold

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

A Touch of Blue

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

Sunset in the Mountains

Though Mt St Helens 
remained hidden under the cover of clouds
the sky cleared to the west
just in time to experience
a glorious sunset

Wandering the Woodlands

Nothing nourishes my soul more
than a walk in the woods

Hues of Blue

As day slowly turned to night
the sky was filled with hues
of blue

A Dusting of Snow

Blue skies
if only for 
a whisper of time

dancing in the moonlight

Sunset Serenade

The mountains called to me
and I humbly obliged

Happy Little Rainforest

Raindrops keep falling
and falling
Our lush green rainforests
love the rain
So do I

Seasons Change

Wetland reeds
putting on their coats of brown
readying for winter

Above and Beyond

Above the clouds
along Spirit Lake Hwy
where Mt St Helens dwells
and maybe a tiny piece
of Heaven

Walking the Wetlands

A peaceful walk
clears the mind
and frees the soul

A touch of morning frost
to welcome in
 a brand new day

For San Bernardino

No words
can express the sorrow
Only prayers

The Columbia River
steeped in fog
and uncertainties
of land or river

Shadows Fall Deep

In mere moments
its gone
that last light of day
