Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Mighty Succession




There is a beauty
In wreck and ruin
Where survival
Is the leading lady
Time worn
But still standing
The scars of violence
Begin to heal
Her pyroclastic flow
Long since dried
But deep down inside
Her core still burns

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem #1259 creating beauty and The Daily Post: Mighty

This is a photograph of Mt St Helens 37 years after her iconic blast.

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.
