In the distant sky where the rainbows meet the white clouds, a flower beautiful as a cloudless night is born.
Silently… in the distant sky
Where the rainbows
Meet the white clouds
Beautiful as a cloudless night
Amidst soft whisper, unseen
To everyone but my dream’s eyes.
I see it blooming
Unaware of its innocence
Its beauty overwhelms me, terrifies me
And slowly… blissfully ignorant
It dies silently;
Shedding its soft petals in the dark
Like teardrops, into my hands
Now nothing remains there
The night but still awaits.
