Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Needle’s searing heat
Indelible memories
Inked onto flesh

Perfect storm of emotions
Cleansing pain turns to pleasure

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #23: Heat

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.

  6. I trust that touching the tattoo is somewhat less dangerous than touching an actual blue-ringed octopus.
