Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Trust to Dust



Darkness of night, the fading of light,
Eternity may be illusion, not a foregone conclusion,
And all that we fear, when the end is so near,
That our last breath on earth, will it lead to rebirth?
Holding on, to all that we trust, the cosmos are certain, we all turn to dust.

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  5. Your five line acrostic is very deep and philosophical! It ponders the big question of life after death, and ends with the truth that our physical bodies return to dust. Very nicely done 🙂
