Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Sea level blow out
Broken pieces left behind
Dark sea to reclaim

Inspired by Mark Bialczak’s *great line:

Momentary slip
*Flop forever lost its flip
Soft flesh, sand and grip

Flip has lost its flop
That unmistakable pop
Shoe about to drop

In response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

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. 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.

  8. Mark, you’re killin’ me!


  9. Irene,thank you! I’m just glad it wasn’t the “other” kind of thong. You never know what you’ll find on the beach on a holiday weekend.

  13. You are right. That is not a story I would care to write about – unless it was a comedy.
