Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Yellow Pond Lily



Mossy swamp beckons
Topaz jewel dappled sunlight
Yellow Pond Lily

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.
