Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

“For the Star Festival”



for the Star Festival
even when hearts cannot meet

Dancing Echoes:

fire and paper unite
lifting spirits young and old

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #87, Basho’s “for the Star Festival”

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.

  3. Thank you! Unfortunately I know how to tangle a lot of things.


  4. Ha! And untangle, I presume. Good with the figurative fingers or just go to the knife for the knottiest?
