Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



Sandview Sunset CJD

Knowing our true selves
Obscured by physical flesh
Souls softly whisper

Look beyond the reflection
Universal beating heart

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem Theme Week (6) 7 Jane’s last haiku (Jisei)
and Patrick Jennings A Pic and a Word Challenge #49: Obscured

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.
