Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Shining Through




light of the full moon
shines through colored leaves
at last … autumn



Light of a burning candle
Shines through a hand carved pumpkin


New Response:

Blood red summer sun
Shining through the morning smog
Now a memory

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.
