Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

White Blossoms



Night Blooming Jasmine
Gently opens its white stars
Golden setting sun

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem #725, white blossoms

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.

  6. Thank you for following my blog. I have just been reading your haiku/ photos with great enjoyment – this of the jasmine is truly beautiful – i can smell it. I am also a scientist ‘gone rogue’ into other kinds of appreciation of the wonder of the world. See you again soon

  9. Thank you. That is actually a photo I took and modified using a painter app.


  10. Thanks for the follow. I have really enjoyed your blog, and look forward to following yours. I was attracted to the name of your blog, Dancing Echoes–I met my husband dancing, and the theme of our wedding was two people dancing around one center. I put a lot of wear and tear on my knees as a precision clogger, but I still hear the beat of every step in my head and cannot refrain from clogging when I find myself on a wooden sidewalk.

  11. That is wonderful! Not about your knees though, sorry. I know what you mean about can’t refrain. I always feel sorry for who ever sits in front of me at a dance performance because I am inevitably going to jump and kick their seat. I look like I’m sitting still but my mind is dancing along, my muscles are tensing and sometimes that mind/body connection breaks through and pow!

  12. Like a piano player who hears the notes and whose fingers move on an invisible keyboard, silently playing along.
