for two years
I have lived
in the mountains

growing food
growing hearts
growing dignity

people started as strangers and grew into friends
an eclectic family
brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles

they understand
some matter of my heart

and we’ve worked and argued and come to agreement
we’ve been through our fair share of trials
emerging stronger, clearer, brighter

and as my departure draws nearer
a sweetness is emerging
of learning, living, loving
this people
this place

learning, living, loving
learning, living, loving
learning, living, loving

thank you.
