Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Leafless Trees



Tree’s skeletal bones
Point an accusing finger
At old man winter

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem #1069 leafless trees and
JNW’s Halloween Challenge: Spooky

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. The photo complements the apt haiku well. This CDHK episode has become a metaphor festival for leafless trees. Jane Reichold gave them halos; U gave them fingers; I gave them lungs. Have not looked at all the responses, so cannot be certain that nobody has given weeping willows dreadlocks.


  5. Thank you Mellow! I will have to check it out! I haven’t had time to look at everyone’s post but I plan on doing so.You have a great idea….it’s not too late.
