    Well, since PotS and PanS haven't really been getting too much activity, they may get kick started more if you, the denizens of KHV, submitted themes instead of relying on the INFINITE WISDOM of Cat~.

    Interesting words right?

    Swaying roses,
    unyielding love,
    crescent moons,
    shallow hope,
    lost dreams,
    thoughtless tunes of a forgotten time,
    memories of what was and will be,
    an endless expanse of colorful stars,
    withheld breath

    That's all for now until I can think of something more interesting.
