Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Nocturnal Emissions


Night Blooming Jasmine
Intoxicating perfume
Arousing senses

Musky, sweet jasmine
Night blooms in the eigengrau
Perfumed betrayal

Centrum nocturnum
Under cover of darkness
Aromatic emissions

Prompted by the One Word Photo Challenge: Eigengrau

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.

  4. Sorry, I imagine you thought the worst with that title due to your job. Not trying one-up you in bodily fluids department. You win that one hands down.
