Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence





Snuggled in sleeping bags
Under a starry canopy
We whisper sweet nothings
While the campfire wanes

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge # 152: Fire


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.

  6. Thank you Patrick. Photo is a recreation and words are an old memory of a camping trip at Moosehead Lake, ME that left a lasting impression on me. A primitive, visceral connection to the universe.
