Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Childhood cloud dreams
Tall ships and sea serpents fight
To the hot sun death

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem Modern Times Haiku #2 Margaret Chula’s “following my footprints”

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.

  1. I see the images you described in the clouds. I have a photo of a unicorn cloud on my cell phone.
    I love the song, “Both Sides Now.” The part with clouds in it makes me smile and the part with Love in it makes me sad a little.

  3. Awww, that is a great song. I will remember that now when I look at clouds. I am so glad you can see the images. I was a bit worried I was the only one…..


  4. Thank you! That is the green roof of the building I work in. I am often up there taking photos, especially cool clouds and weather phenomena.


  5. What is that phantasmagorical picture on top? So beautiful but can’t possibly be real.

  6. What a great word , “phantasmagorical”. Very real the clouds this time of year are spectacular. Unfortunately it also means we are getting deep into hurricane season.


  7. That is very dramatic, goes so well with the photo.
