Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Autumn Monarchs



Migrating Monarchs
Tumble from atop the trees
Black and orange leaves

In response to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai: Autumn Kukai. Please go to the link and see the beautiful haiku by the winner Hamish Gunn and runner-up Sara McNulty.

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.

  5. YES! Migrating monarchs are special. Butterflies commonly flit in various random-looking directions. The steady, purposeful flight of migrating monarchs is an inspiration to people who must keep putting one foot in front another along the path to a distant goal.
