Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

That Wintry Minx




as mercury dives
a wintry mix freezes
life into sculpture

the only up side
to burst pipes spewing water
ice castles forming

sounds of a faucet
above the icy silence

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.

  4. I really enjoyed your poem and photos. I live in Australia and have rarely experienced snow and thick ice. It looks beautiful but it must be incredibly cold.

  6. Thank you Suzanne! I live in Florida and this is rare too. In the Panhandle we usually get a few chilly days but to get to the point of having a “snow day” is uncommon. The poor plants here are in bad shape now.

  7. That must be so strange. I always think of Florida as tropical. The weather is really screwy these days.

  12. Oh, lovely. We rarely get ice storms in BC. When I lived in New Hampshire, we’d get a few every winter. Always spectacular.

    You’ve captured it beautifully.=)

  14. Thank you. Oh yes! I grew up in a northern climate and miss winter terribly. I always look forward to getting a small bit of it now and again. I find beauty in all of the seasons. My body likes the cold better as well as I get lethargic in the heat. Must be my Swedish blood.
