Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Glass Menagerie



Branches hang heavy
Under weight of frosted glass
Errant ice storm

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem #848 Frosted Grass

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.

  6. Thank you. No not yet on the ice. Keep in mind this was FL too. We almost never get snow but once in a while we do get glaze ice. It is extremely destructive. A lot of plants can’t recover not to mention the numerous car wrecks. Lucky for me my work told me to stay home until it was more safe to drive so I got to go play in all the beauty with my camera.


  7. “frosted glass” nice choice of words … here in The Netherlands we have did very often in this time of year, at the end of autumn and at the start of winter. Really a nicely written haiku Christy.

  8. Thank you. I am trying to get better and learn. I need to make sure my haiku stand alone without a picture to make sure the “minds eye” is brought into play with the words too.
