Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Autumn Voices


After the geese are long gone
I sense the trace they leave behind
Their skyward voice a path
Fading off into the distance

Using these five words: [ GONE – SENSE – TRACE – VOICE – PATH ]

In response to The Secret Keeper: Weekly Writing Challenge #59




Being in nature
I am reminded that
I am merely a portal
A channel for the universe
Part of a greater web
Of connections and purpose
And I find solace in the thought
All that have come before me
All that will come after me
Are part of a bigger plan

Full Circle


Pattering of rain
Unfurling tender young leaves
Painting blooming buds

Misty mountain air
The solitude of silence
Meditating monk

River of steelhead
Race against a summer breeze
She gasps her last breath

Seeds scattered on snow
Sparrows flit with excitement
Against a blue sky

It’s the scars you don’t see
That represent the most damage
The scars that forced a change
That I resisted until I broke
So that healing could begin
