Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Under a Baller Moon



Born of violence
Earths celestial neighbor
Cosmic punching bag
4.5 billion years old
Puppeteer to rhythmic tides

Humankind’s curiosity driven quest for discovery is so strong that it propelled us from exploring different continents to exploring different worlds on both the cosmic and sub-atomic level. We are putting the answers to our universal puzzle together one piece at a time. The moon has a special meaning to me. It is my quintessential symbol of human exploration and discovery because I am old enough to have witnessed the first moon walk live. I only wish I could be present for all great discoveries.

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.

  3. Thank you! I was trying to get the full moon a few weeks ago and saw this image as I walked past the neighbors hoop. I couldn’t resist.

  6. Lovely words, as always. And I love your fearlessness with darkness… I always want to fill in the details, but a large field of blackness works so well in this image. Nice!

    And… thanks for being the first respondent to my challenge. : )

  7. Thank you. I felt the subject was a bit of a stretch but I really do believe landing on the moon and now our deep space exploration epitomizes mankind and the need to discover. It is also my hope that the human need for discovery will ultimately unite us as a species.


  8. <smile> No more of a stretch than many of my challenge responses. ; )

    And, hopefully, I think you’re right about the spirit of discovery being a unifying one.
