Black Blossom


Vibrations from the stars are collected in their hands, embraced until becoming small crystals.
The lucid drops are poured into an amber stream, traveling with sundry minerals, then finally delivered to the eternal space.
Gigantic black petals are foamed by the enriched vibrations. The gradual blossom makes the darkness tremble endlessly.
The pollens have returned to the origin at last, and the twinkle are waiting for the moment to be implanted in our imagination.
