Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Whale gracefully feeds
On drifting plastic plankton
Death by starvation

I am keenly aware that I am part of the problem: http://bit.ly/2kwnMn6

I response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #74: Absurd

Author: Dancing Echoes

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. This is really powerful.

    It is also amazing how good old plastic bags can look when artfully framed and not in the water. Glad those bags will end up inside a recycling center rather than inside a whale or sea turtle.

  2. Thank you Mellow. I hope they end up in recycling but of course I can’t control their fate once they leave my possession. Problem is I have reusable bags, lots of them. I just got lazy. I now have them in a bin my car so I have no excuses to not use them in the future.

  3. It is a tragic truth that we don’t take better care how we throw things out. When they say we need to be the caretakers of nature’s wonders, I believe this!
