Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



Rivulets of rain
Cascade down my heaving breast
Arms outstretched with joy

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI, Carpe Diem Special #138: Santoka Taneda’s “Soaking Wet”

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.

  5. Aaah rain! I miss it sometimes. I like how you immerse yourself in it, not just observing it but being in it, the heaving just gives it that desperate or delirious quality…love it.

  6. We had a real frog strangler today. I had to wait for it to subside before I could take the photo or it would have ruined the camera. It was nice waking up to the sound though. Good reason to be lazy on a Sunday.
