Music Composers Unite!

Hello everyone!
Decided to give this a try.. have been on this forum for a while now but haven't really said much. Recently uploaded a sonatina I did for school, finished in June:

It comes in two parts: 1. No moon
                                2. No treetops

This is very good. Not much else to say, except I wonder about the meaning of the subtitles. Are they meant to be playful suggestions, like Debussy's? Some of his are pretty obscure, to say the least ("and the moon descends on the temple that was," for example). Or is there more specific meaning? If so, an explanation would be helpful. But the music more than stands on its own, no doubt about that. Extremely impressive.

Thanks! It narrates some kind of a story for my perspective, but the last thing I want to do is to manipulate the imagination of other listeners.. but for myself I have found it to be an anxious experience of someone completely alone at night, finding out that first the moon has disappeared and then so have the treetops.. just trees are suddenly ending halfway. (I didn't plan that at first. I always attach the titles after I have finished, to have more freedom in composing.) Both the titles are lines from a rather surreal poem. Thanks a lot for your kind words, it helps me cope with starting school again..
