Short Poem: Where I’m From

by Leah on Aug 29,2019

(Inspired by NPR crowdsource poem collective.)

I am from a short flame that burnt out slowly,
from a whirlwind childhood in different places
from long summers and the country
from memories of distant friends and faces.
I am from wilderness and nature
from the scents of dust, dirt and earth
from long days on the river
from wild animals and mirth.
