Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

A Falling Sound



Shoes dropping to floor
Quickened anticipation
Clothes fly in frenzy

In response to CARPE DEIM HAIKU KAI: On The Trail With Basho Encore 5 a falling sound

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. Reblogged this on Mellow  Curmudgeon and commented:
    The photo by Dancing Echoes reblogged below has inspired another haiku.

             A flipped coin may land
             on edge. Erect, her dropped shoe
             mimics his penis.

    At my age, on the other hand, those high heels and narrow toes scream “Bunion City!”

  12. Thank you for the reblog! What a great haiku response. After spending a good amount of my time in point shoes, high heels ain’t nothin’.
