Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Stiff breeze from the south
Bamboo slaps against the house
Last night’s memory

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem #942 Thorn and                                                           Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #29: Memory

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. It is rare for haiku to flow this way… have this kind of rhythm. I really really love it. Beautiful, in meter and meaning.

  7. This is a stunning haiku, and certainly sensual for me…there’s something about last night in this context with the nature…. – really you applied the technique beautifully.
