Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Clinging to the past
Tendrils climb towards winter sun
Blue Morning Glory

Fighting the onset of frost
Spent blossoms soon memories

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #28: Clinging

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.

  4. Nothing captures fleeting time more than the Morning Glory, and I like how you introduce its clinging nature.

  6. Mmmm… rushing the spring with a beauty deftly ephemeral. Lovely imagery… and metaphor?

  7. Thank you. Absolutely a metaphor. It could represent the passing of youth, to which I can relate as a woman in her mid-fifties. But I primarily wrote it about a family member suffering from Alzheimer’s.
