Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



Spinning down
a portal of despair
searching ikigai
knowing if I do the work
a radiant sky awaits

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #243: Portal and #244: Radiance

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. What a sky in that photo! And the poem packs quite a visual punch too

  2. Thank you MB! Didn’t have to do too much with that photo. That storm was magnificently angry with frog strangler rain on its heels.
