Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Dragonfly Troiku




Dragonfly lights near
In the fading autumn light
Iridescent eyes


Dragonfly lights near
Resting on a jasmine vine
One short day of life

In the fading autumn light
Dragonflies replace blossoms
Amongst jasmine leaves

Iridescent eyes
Scan the early evening
One last chance to dance

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.

  3. Thank you kindly! Yes, I like this form very much. Ingenious of you to come up with it. It is however quite a challenge having to come up with four at once!

  4. The troiku form is intriguing (but more challenging than I dare try any time soon). The unity of this troiku is wonderful. E pluribus unum.

  5. You will have to thank Chèvrefeulle for coming up with this wonderful form! It is challenging as it is 4x the work (if you call creativity work).
