I love the wording and imagery...

Great symbolism here of the passing of youthful dreams and expectations. The use of different angles - flowers grounded and kites flying adds much, especially when brought together by them both falling, withering and forgotten. Very well done.

There are so many lessons that can be gleaned from this verse. The one that touches me the most is the impermanence of those things that are loved so intensely. Thank you for sharing this.

Colorful symbolism perhaps of aspirations and dreams that do not make it though vivid at first! Their beauty in just being even though brief their stay.

I can't even describe this, it's just, amazingly beautiful, makes me think of rain, for some reason, i get a whole feeling/scene in my head from just reading this...

I love the "you", the "i", and the "we" of this. The imagery is terrific - the describing of childlike activities in an adult experience.

Flowers of knowledge and planes of thought that crash in tears, love the images this brings.......
