Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Winds of Change


Seeds of love scattered
Blown by winds of emotion
Clouds of teargas

All we have
Is a few short minutes
To be sons and daughters
Fathers and mothers
Friends and lovers
There is no color
No race
No nation
Only humanity
Let us help each other
To live our best lives
In peace and compassion

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #235: Rant!

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 wrote in your comment on the challenge page that this post isn’t much of a rant for you… I can’t say I’m exactly sure what you meant by that, but it inspired some thoughts.

    Sometimes, a rant comes in the form of a quiet rage, an at-the-end-of-my-rope I-can’t-believe-I-have-to-say-this-but… It comes as an expression of exasperated frustration. Not sure, but that emotional state seems to lay just beneath your words here.

    Rodney King’s rant was brief and rifled with despair: People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along?

    That was nearly 30 years ago. And here we are. There have been so many more in between. How many more will it take, before people no longer feel compelled to so elegantly write or state a plea for what should be our everyday state of being?
