1.
The vivid skirts of dancers
Swaying and twirling in the wind

2.
A morning star
Bursting like fireworks in the gloomy sky

3.
The pure happiness of a child
Its petals spreading out into a grin

4.
Midas’ fingers
A golden touch radiating prosperity

5.
A sprout from the earth
Summoning the birds
To commence their sweet melodies

6.
A push through strong, stubborn roots
After winter

7.
The rising sun
Blooming into a new day
