Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




A time of turmoil
Humanity on the rocks
All compassion gone

Heart hardened like stone
From pain, fear, disappointment
My internal shell

Then this loving face
Acts as the water or wind
I break down and cry

I needed this light
In a time when peace alludes
Love among the hate

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #73: Love
Please click on the link to Patrick’s piece, The Angel. It is exquisite.

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.

    Thank you
    For this post: its clarity, vulnerability and insight
    For your kind words and link for my post “The Angel”

    I’m moved that your emergence from darkness was in anyway inspired by her. She was, as you’ve already read on my post, something on the order of divine.
