A Poem About Me
I am from Belarus
South Carolina, Ohio, and deer-filled NJ.
I am from a life-time of homeschool
Letter correspondence with friends from my half-year of "real school."
I am from beet borscht and gluten free bread
studded with raisins and dripping fresh butter
Early morning markets and the smell of warm muffins.
I am from train tracks and creek beds
Suburbs and neighborhood cats
cricket orchestras and reading in the hammock.
I'm from snowy skies and soupy summers
6 moves and 3 countries
Moving fast and pushing on.
I'm from a paradox of too many activities
but 2 kindred spirits and a love for nature and sleepy afternoons.
I'm from "time and place" and the "long speech"
"He is risen indeed" and "have fun storming the castle"
I'm from a world-wide worldview,
Justice for all,
Kids can be the change,
Belief in magic and the Maker
Packed in yet another moving box
taped with high hopes and a history of loss
is my life box--
theatre programs, baseball tickets, homemade books and a billion unfinished journals, sheet music and poetry.
A lifetime of small accomplishments winding a twisted path into future's veiled promises.
