where I am from - poppies

I am from wind,
from sunglasses, and flip flops.
I am from the land of cold ocean waves and sky-scraping treetops.
I am from wildflowers,
the bright, unexpected spray of poppies.
I am from generosity and hard laughter,
from Carlsons, Scelzas, Adcocks, McLaughlans, and Braithwaites.
I am from loud-mouthed opinions and revolving-door hospitality.
From, “You can do anything.”
And, “You are perfect just as you are.”
I am from the West,
spaghetti and tacos.
I am from wanderlust, music and sun.
