Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Truth is Black and White



I can’t breath

The presence of mind
To set the world on fire
Nothing left to lose

House afire
Hot with hate
Washed in vainglorious jactitation

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #234: Presence

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.

  1. You can blow out a candle
    But you can’t blow out a fire
    Once the flames begin to catch
    The wind will blow it higher

    ~ Biko
    Peter Gabriel

    And, yes, the implied association of Stephen Biko with George Floyd is intentional.

  3. Well said.  While the word [jactitation] was new to me, the activity was all too familiar, to me and to every thinking person who follows politics.  The would-be dictator who currently defiles the White House is already Jactitator-in-Chief.
