California is On My Mind


This is my California...

The light dances through the chloroplast and casts its last greenish hue of the early fall on the sidewalk.
I caught a glimpse of California in Korea today.
I ran through the crowded streets as if everyone was at a stand-still.  The sweet smell of the decomposing sycamore leaves transported my thoughts... transported my being.  My pace increased and my heart pounded.  I stretched the limits of my abilities and the pain was still unable to reach me because I caught a glimpse of California in Korea today.
She walked into the room with her informal elegance.  The lights softend and so did my heart.  Her smile would melt even the most ironclad of men.  The vibrations of her voice resonated in my head as if the unwritten works of Mozart were a secret only I posessed.  The Beach Boys were right. I wish they all could be Californian Girls.
