flower festival

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

花朝节 Flower Festival

农历二月十二 (2017年3月9日)相传为百花生日。花朝节在中国古代是一个十分重要的民间传统节日。花朝节,是纪念百花的生日,因古时有“花王掌管人间生育”之说。This festival is to celebrate the birthday of all flowers. This was a very important festival in ancient times because there was a saying that the flower king controls birth in the human world. There are 12 flowers representing each month of the lunar calendar. In more recent history, there is also 12 flower goddesses representing each flower, and each one has a beautiful story behind them.
