Where I'm From

One of my favorite bloggers just posted a poem from an elementary school template.

I like writing poetry. So, I decided to write my own and share it here.

Where I'm from

I am from music. 
From chocolate and singing.

I am from the lakeside.
From depth and calm 
and raging waves.

I am from blue skies,
 and sunshine, 
and rain.

I am from Brookside and good suntans,  
from Teri and Vince 
and Melanie and Noella. 

I am from Singing and Singing
and more Singing.
I am from the wind section and from the choir.

I am from high expectations and unconditional love.

I am from the water.
Baptized in the Holy Spirit
Beloved child of God.

I’m from Minnesota and Norway and Ireland
and everywhere, 

From cinnamon rolls and lefse, 
from hot dishes, not casseroles.

I am from Grandpa Clint's No Stuff Oreos, 
from Great Grandma Irene's Pinochle rules that no one else knows
  and Grandma Lois's Three Tier Bars 
and Grandma Ramona's Fresh Baked Bread.

I am from  my mother's porch,
my grandma's attic,
my aunt's back deck.

I am from the kitchen table
and family
and love.
