Interesting juxtaposition of sound & sight. Effective.

P.S. Having each line centered gives your entries a different "feel".

Thanks, Vaughn. That juxtaposition was the main thing for me.

Yes, my ku feel different to me depending on how they're arranged. In my head, I think they are almost always centered, but they don't show up that way at workshops and other locations.
