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.

  7. <smile> A limerick is a right beautiful sendoff for a loved companion.

    And the tanka a most poetically beautiful one.

    I love that two responders to this week’s challenge took this context for “crossing”. It hadn’t even occurred to me. =)
