Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Wet Spot


imageDamp remnants on sheets
Reminder of day’s past love
Gathered to my face
Warm fragrance of us lingers
Pity to wash their perfume

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.

  10. Thank you! I don’t know why but I have always liked red sheets. Maybe it’s because skin looks good on them -rosy instead of sallow.
