Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

All That Glitters



Glitter of fall gold
Lunaria annua
Jangle in the wind

Sun’s x-rays give us a peek
The promise of future life

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge 111: Gold and the weekly Photo Challenge: Peek

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. I had only seen *L. annua* when sold as dried “silver dollar” plants w/o mature seeds. Thanks for the evocative tanka and the image showing what they look like if allowed to mature and given a nicer reason to look golden than my old camera’s flaky white balance.

  3. Thank you Mellow. Yes, I was trying to avoid the “silver dollar” reference since the print was gold. I don’t think I had seen them gone this far into the seed stage either and it was cool to see them growing wild.

  4. Wonderful: image and words. How wonderful to hear the wind in the rattling seed pods.

    “Lunar Annual” … but here the sun’s rays refracted rather than reflected. And the seeds, like the Man in the Moon.

  5. Thank you Patrick. Man in the Moon, what a great perspective to think about the name of the plant as it relates to the photo.
