Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Empty Nest


The nest is empty
Now is the time for ourselves
Start a new chapter

Prompted by RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #40: New&Time

Author: Dancing Echoes

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.

  11. Just love your Haiku and the accompanying image is so nice, a great shot you got there. Is the header picture a photo or a painting?

  12. Thank you so much! The header is a photo I took near my yard on a foggy day. I used a Jixpix painter app to soften it and make it more of a surreal-like dream image.

  13. Dreamy it is, smoldering. I wasn’t sure, but you didn’t mention painting in your bio there so I had to ask. I’ve never seen a photo like it, or did I and maybe thought it was a painting? Ah, well, yours is wonderful!
