This pair of bleeding heart blossoms reminds me of the final quote from Truman Capote’s, short story, A Christmas Memory .
“A message saying [my friend had died] merely confirms a piece of news some secret vein had already received, severing me from an irreplaceable part of myself, letting it loose like a kite on a broken string. That is why, walking across a school campus on this particular December morning, I keep searching the sky. As if I expected to see, rather like hearts, a lost pair of kites hurrying towards heaven.”
The ABC Stage 67 adaption for television by Truman Capote and Eleanor Perry, (narrated by Capote) won two Emmy’s and the Peabody Award.
