Favorite Quote:
keep calm and stop being lazy.

In the darkness I shine,

a ray of hope

against the dark night sky.


I’m dreaming alone

under the moon’s

elegant smile.



I conjure a sunlit world

awake with anticipation.


Where trumpet fanfares

beckon along 

cobblestone streets.


Where listeners are joyful

because of me.

And I am never alone.


Night falls.

And it is I, reaching forlornly

for the sky.


At least the moon

is smiling at me.

Who else will keep her company?


The splendor that appears

from darkness…

is me.

In Floriography, the white moonflower is associated with dreams and encouragement, its trumpet-like bloom reaching full flower only in the dark of night.
