serene autumn scenes.
bill evans on a darkened winter day.
encountering a dash of green
amidst a bed of browning leaves.
such experiences carry me
through rough days,
though april rain gets me feeling
a certain way.
a reminder of earnest hugs
from long-absent friends.
when I need it the most.
a rain-kissed reward
escapes the ground.
the lingering scent of home,
kuala lumpur on a rainy march afternoon.
soft spring showers get me loving
a certain, familiar way.
