Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #22: Rust

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. 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.

  1. Mmmmm…. sweet! I do love rust, and barbed wire, especially in a tangle of disrepair. “I have given up, at least a little, on keeping you out/in.”

    I have given up
    At least I have a little
    On keeping you in

  3. And why would you want to keep someone in?


  4. Opening the fence
    Hoping for willing return
    There in lies the truth

  5. Oh, we do that all the time. At least, I do. I try to keep people in relationships with me. I try to keep co-workers in harmony with me. I try to keep people in my memory — their best moments and their worst.

    No matter how well-intentioned, it is all confinement.

  6. Willing return, or decision to stay. Confinement, however, breeds contempt.
