A Bowl Of Rice Always

Rating: 4.8


A fractured home
A distanced heartache

A chopstick, an empty cup
A windchime in a garden

A bowl of rice
Always the small things

insightful words, getting straight to the core. It's the small things that say it all

Such a lonely ambiance. Perfectly stitched togther. Short and straight. Very good

I felt a sense of melancholy when I saw these words and items left on a white page. They spoke volumes that many often complicated words cannot emulate. 10 Karin Anderson
