Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence






The glow of life as it recedes
Deep into the dormant stage
Gathering energy, steadfastly waiting
For the first hint of spring’s warmth
To release the sleeping beauty within
And begin the life cycle anew

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a word Challenge #109: Steadfast, The Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow and The Daily Post: Release


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.

  11. Thank you Christie, and it’s nice that I’ve found you too… I see you write a lot of Haiku’s, I’m not quite into them yet, but I’ll send you a link to one short poems, I think you’ll appreciate it, by what I’ve read of your works.
