Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Curling outward
Metal against glass
Throwback to a bygone era
When car windows were rolled down by hand
To better smell the wildflowers on a warm summer night lit with fireflies

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #95: Creativity

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.

  2. You’ve captured such beauty in the mundane, Christy. Wonderful, creative eye to have noticed the rusty spiral as a photographic gem. Loved your poetry, also. ❤

  11. First, you are not an idiot. I don’t think anyone else noticed either except maybe Siegling. Second, I mentioned it because you have a penchant for patterns. I thought about tagging it as a Fibonacci poem (as a new structure) much like an elfji but figured it would lead to confusion.

  12. Thank you, you are kind. I didn’t go very far with it though. This is the kind of poem that would be fun as a group project. Each poet having to add more and more. It would be a novel in no time and one very long sentence.

  13. ‘A penchant for patterns’ – I wish! But do continue to think so. 🙂 I’m doing my best to live up to it.

  14. <smile> I love this image — the subject and framing are both something I might’ve shot myself. 😉

    And, Arwen, I didn’t notice either. But it is brilliant. =)
