Where are you from?

“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.”
― R. Buckminster Fuller

I’m from the crash site of a fallen star,
from the dust of earthen scars…

I’m from a city near the mountains of the moon,
blood stained lands,
dry monsoons,
from mosquito habitats and drenching rains
from wild vistas
and dusty plains…

I’m from the memory of invisibility,
wide-eyed wonder,
I’m from shyness, born out of shame,
freckled faced
hair of flame…

I’m from the dance
of faded dreams,
from the bravery of life’s extremes,
I’m from the sorrow that lies in the bones
from lost tribes
searching for home….

I’m from the resonance of singing chimes,
called beloved
by the lords of time…

I’m the flower-child of fragrant beds,
barefoot meadows
and mystical threads….

I’m from visions beyond the known,
encircled in light,
never alone…
I’m from the love of Jah’s breath,
not believing the sting of death…

I’m from the kindness of human touch,
from broken hearts
where love is enough…

I’m from the loneliness
of feeling out of place,
from constellations built on grace…

I’m from rivers of copious tears,
kept in jars for a zillion years,
from gatherings of bereaved souls,
trying to be whole…

I’m from the song of birds at dawn,
at first light
I am reborn…
I’m from the homage of tall trees
and the worship of honey bees…

I’m from the celebration of all that is,
the ambience of the Creator’s kiss…

I’m from nowhere and everywhere,
perhaps I came here unprepared?



I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
