Life Experience

I’m told I’m too young to say “was,” but I see how things have changed.

Jasper-15 Words

If it weren’t for over analysis of the most mundane things, where would I be?

I am From


I am from blankets

From Kleenex and NyQuil

I am from the warm and cozy room

(small, yellow, it smells of vanilla)

I am from pomegranate,

big, red, juicy, messy and staining everything 

I’m from LA trips and blue eyes

From Jenna and Helen 

I’m from the argumentative and stubborn,

From “Don’t go in those woods” and 

“Be nice to your siblings”

I’m from Hanukkah, burning candles, sharing bread

I’m from Massachusetts and Ohio and California,

Skyline chili, honey bunches of oats,

From the sleeping at great grandma's place, 

eating breakfast the next morning,

the playing dress up with sisters

I am from pictures on various shelves,

now in separate households

But still once my family

Details

Moving air.
Bird songs.
The world and your mind.

The moans of the wind rustling the world around you,
Arising questions and quelling answers as you accept.

The undertones of the bird songs sing a different meaning
Dark meanings covered by light answers and hope and truth.

The world rustles your inspiration and passion and words
As they flow effortlessly from your head to your hands
Your fingers tingle with a need to move
To write
To say.

I've never understood
Why details are importent.
