Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Rich soil stripped bare
Devoid of life sustaining roots
Time scours away

In response to Patrick Jennings a Pic and a Word Challenge #15: Erosion

Author: Dancing Echoes

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. Beautiful picture. Amazing the color nuggets in there. Almost like sapphires and rubies. All of your poems are more than they seem. On the surface it is erosion, yes, but your meaning is much deeper I think.

  2. Yes, you are very observant. There is a deeper meaning. Maybe erosion isn’t all bad if it reveals sapphires and rubies that weren’t noticed before. Thank you.

  4. I noticed colors and like an earlier comment, impressed with the beauty of the rocks and natural setting. Time taking and scouring away layers does have an evocative quality to this.
