Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



2017-09-20 19.15.31-1

One does wonder
About the number
Of snowflakes in a storm
Or grains of sand on a beach
Drops of water in the ocean
Or stars in the sky
Molecules in our body
Or life in the universe
The number of infinite possibilities
Of mankind
To find the truth
As sentient beings
Are want to do
Rather than be
And the need to know “why”
Is hardwired in our DNA

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #106: Numbers

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.

  2. Is suspect that our curios nature and need to explore and know why is part of our survival mechanism. In any case I am grateful to have the awareness of being here because it is a pretty sweet ride.
