Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




The best way to calm my soul
Is to get out in the golden light
To feel a sense of purpose
To find a focal point of beauty
Amongst the overwhelming noise

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.

  12. Nice colors and language use in the poem. I like that you do not “see” the golden light, you are “in” it. As if it is protecting you from the “overwhelming noise”. Enjoyed, thanks.

  19. Precious solitude. Calmly drifting. The shore behind me, the noisy, overwhelming day still to come. A moment of pink-gold glory as the day begins.
