flower clouds

a Chinese idiom describing legendary beauties translates vaguely as: fish sink to the bottom of the river and flying swans fall out of the sky, the moon hides behind a cloud and flowers close their petals

fish sink - they are so distracted by the beauty that they forget how to swim

flying swans - same, so mersmerized they forget how to fly

moon and flowers - so ashamed after comparing themselves to the beauty that they prefer to hide

This describes him so well???????????
