Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Dove cries at first light
That first morning without you
My heart still tender

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KA: Carpe Diem #955 morning

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. There is something uniquely plaintive in a dove’s call. And in the quiet moments of morning, a lone call with no response. … so so-so-so lonely.

    Perfectly rendered images.

  7. Thank you kindly. I wanted to keep the interpretation of loss open too. Some may see a death, some the loss of a lover.
