Through Parks and Rivers: A Quick Love Story

Let me tell you a story.

It all started with a short walk that turned into a long one, until the kilometers just kept on adding up. By the Pear River he and I walked –

Through the blistering heat of noon,
By the vibrant canvas of sunset,
Shivering a bit from the cold of winter nights,
Basking in the silence of balmy summer dawns.

Somewhere along those kilometers, I chanced upon the glorious sight of his grey eyes, flecked with yellow looking so ardent as he explained the elements of what makes a sunset beautiful (“It’s not the sun per se, but the perfect merging of wispy clouds and fiery lavender skies”) and I knew…

I was forever lost in his depths, like a coin tossed into the murky waters of the Zhu Jiang.

Little did I know, somewhere along the countless backstreets, parks, markets, temples, and places we’ve been, he also took a look at me and saw someone he’d like to watch sunsets with and perhaps even kiss while light faded into dark.

And so, as we both slowly savored this realization, we continued our walk through parks and rivers, through love and life.

The end.
