Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Sweet, tangy liquid
Memories of summertime,
Poured up in a glass.

#Nomiku is a form of poetry I made up. It follows the spirit of Haiku but describes a gastronomic experience.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?.”

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. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  4. So you are the creator and inventor of this new form. Exciting. Maybe one day I can take on this form.

  5. I would invite anyone to create using this format. In fact, I have thought seriously about hosting a challenge using this idea but I need the time to do it justice (appreciate and honor participants) and my time is limited right now. Maybe I need to just suck it up and do it anyway since what I love the most about blogging is the sharing of creative ideas.

  6. Hey you never know it can be the beginning of something big. But if you can’t put in to it what you want out of it, I would definitely wait so that your work and the work of others can properly be appreciated by the creator 🙂

  7. My mother and her best friend Lily would make daiquiris when they got together at our house for lunch which was approximately once a month. They were both born in Ireland and lived on adjoining farms as children, They enjoyed the good fortune of also being fairly close to each other geographically after moving to the U.S., getting married and having families. I have fond memories of entering the kitchen after school (I know a bit early for cocktails!) amid the whirr or the blender and seeing them laughing and enjoying life. Wonderful times…

  8. That is amazing, my Mom and her next door neighbor friend would do the same thing! Friday afternoon I was trying to think of something orange and that memory came to mind. I whipped up a peach daiquiri and took it outside in the sunlight. We don’t have horrible winters here but we have had weeks of cold blah and I missed the warmer weather. Of course after the photo shoot I had to drink the prop. You have a wonderful blog and I look forward to perusing more of your work.
