Autumn Rain * Mary Lathrap

There's a sad, sad voice in the autumn rain, Mournful rain; As it beateth slowly against the pane, Window pane. And the wind sings by with a conscious breath, And seems like a messenger whispering death, As the flowers bend with a drooping eye-- Bend and die. What gives such a sadness unto the rain? … Continue reading Autumn Rain * Mary Lathrap

I am a cloud, congealed against a central object

Norwegian Wood – Haruki Murakami Book Review

Out of all his works, i think this is the first and 'only' normal novel he has written. Normal in a good kind of way. If you've read at … Continue reading Norwegian Wood – Haruki Murakami Book Review
