  3. Beautiful. :)

    I especially like how the missing space before "unfolding" creates the word "gunfolding," which makes me think of folding up a ... gun. :)

  6. Night and day - in your own wonderful way (not that I can claim to know what Diamante means) ..I love the intoxicating spin you have given us.. Although sunflower is beautiful I think moonflower intoxicates us the most
