Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Realizing dreams
Takes time and patience
They will unfold
When the spirit is unfettered
And the mind is free
To move as the wind

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #43: Wind

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. Sweet shot!

    Mmmmm…. sails full; the wind revelling in the canvas…

    …from roadtrip to taken out to the expansive sea. Excellent transition. πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve been living in various shades of darkness for a while. This morning I woke feeling more positive. It’s odd that this should be the first post I read when I switched my laptop on.
    It’s lovely, and I thank you for it xxx

  3. Thank you Jane. I am glad you are feeling better. As I get older I find I believe less in odd and more in the universe having an agenda. As I mentioned when I posted the piece on Patrick’s page, I wrote most of it last week with no idea of the prompt for Sunday. We even used the same word “unfettered”. I almost didn’t post this because who who believe me? Then I decided it is what it is and I am going to post it anyway. I don’t care what people think. So I believe the connection word of the week is “unfettered” which would be my wish for you.

  4. I’m glad you posted it. It’s a very calming piece. I can’t see a day when I’ll be unfettered, but maybe it will come. For the present I’m just glad that there are moments when I experience something approaching peace πŸ™‚
    I really must catch up with your work. With my life and my head being in constant chaos I miss far too much of it

  6. Once the last two lines came, the picture was a natural and the whole piece shifted or should I say “tacked”. I find a sense of peace and calm when near or on the water and some of my favorite memories are of associated with it.

  8. A wonderful poem and a reminder for me to let go and trust the wisdom of the universe. I love the visuals too with the sails and the ocean…the wind charting the course of our lives.

  15. Thank you CEagle. Yep, you can’t force the wind. You just have to wait for it and work with it once it arrives.
