Did you find what you were looking for

In the

Sway of the

Trees? Or did you simply

Recover your senses,

Allow the

Curling balloon strands of

Thought to recoil

Into the snug corners

Of your mind?

No is a complete answer.

    I love that last line, as thought the speaker is annoyed and judging the โ€œyouโ€ for being distracted. Yet the overall effect is quite a surreal beauty. Well done! And congratulations on second place! ๐ŸŽŠ

    I love that last line. No is a complete answer, no need for explanation to follow or overthinking. โ€œCurling balloon strands of thoughtโ€ is a gorgeous turn of phrase.
