Ugh, I'm suffering on what must be a terrible dry spell for writing. SOMEONE SAVE ME!!! I haven't written any thing for over three months. Horrible! I know the feeling in this poem. Congrats on the Editors' Choice on this relateable hiaku.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Many congratulations on the Editor's Choice and listen I am pretty sure that "Infinite Cosmos" shall soon be published! Anyway, THIS ONE HERE, it is simply spectacular. I had never thought of it that way. And the picture is SO suited to the theme. I love that you used the word floodgates.
