Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




First you flash my skin
Burning, sweaty, puddle of tears
Then you leave me cold
Estrogen, you fickle whore
You are not to be trusted

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem Time Glass #34, “juxtaposition”

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.
