Roha, they’re dandelion seeds!!!
They’re dandelion seeds~ Ride the wind and spread far and wide!

According to the language of flowers, dandelions represent hope, growth, and healing — a sign of continuing when things are hard. The flower also represents the sun, the moon, and the stars at different parts of its cycle, three things significant to ASTRO and AROHA.

Go tell those dearest to me

Tickle them softly.
