Scent of ricefields

Inside a fast jeepney
driven down town of Morong,
my mind was meandering.

Until a scent of ricefields
sent by a whiff of wind
permeated my olfactory sense.

Stress it relieved
from my worn and worried mind
and to nature I got closer.

Felt like I've been away
from the hapless rice farmers
I am used to commune with.

Here's wishing
for more jeepney rides
down agricultural towns.

So that frequently
To nature I get reattached
thru the scent of farmers' fields.
