I am from

I am from maple trees with red leaves

from suburban lawns and swimming pools 

and the smell of wet pavement in the summer


I am from golden lakes and sterling ponds

from mountain lion and butterfly

and the song of the red winged blackbird


I am from hands that sand, stich and sew

from power and perfectionism

and the flight path of 747’s


I am from an island of concrete

from imaginary sunbeams

and the shipping lanes of the Saint Lawrence


I am from shallow breaths and dark places

from wounded souls that didn’t know

that sensitivity is a superpower
