My observations, one is missing but it didn't quite feel appropriate for the flow.
1st observation lost to forgetfulness and distraction
2nd observation the particular loss of beauty in a tulip when it gores to long
3rd The word dusk when applied to a dusky sunset
3rd observation the scent of rain heavy like laundry detergent but lacking the proper chemical burn
4th observation child brothers "This is how we roll"
5th Versatility of blues in the sunset, fading of day
