The flower that absorbs dreams (front) The flower that absorbs dreams (Back) 【“The flower that absorbs dreams ”】Dreams are my sources of inspiration. I write down my dreams right after I wake up. But there are days I don’t remember my dreams. It must be the act of the mystical night blooming plant. It would creep up on me in the night and munch on my dreams. After devouring my dreams, its earth color blossoms graces the night for only few moments. The petals unfold, and sweet and dusty perfume permeates the air. And the flower gives an innocent happy yawn like a little child. Then it folds its petals and goes back into the silent darkness.
