Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Winding Road



The briefest of peaks
From behind the parting clouds
Mt Rainier rises

The winding road a witness
To nature’s grand majesty

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem #1260 Winding Road

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.

  6. I had a fun experience taking that photo. A gal on her first visit from Atlanta stopped to take a photo. She thought the first crest was Rainier. I said, “No honey, that’s not it. Wait for just a minute.” When the clouds parted I said, “There, that’s it.” Her reaction was priceless. She positivity squealed when she finally saw it. She had no idea that high cloud bank was covering the mountain.


  7. Beautiful photo! Love the way the summit of Mt Rainier peeks out from the clouds. Very nicely done!
