CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

I Am From the Red & Green

Where it always smells like vinegar and lemon scents.
Where it is always beautiful with the mountains
and the fresh calming winds at Hyde Park.

I am from where family gets together
and has fun.
Where there are bright stars and full moons.

I am from where a lot of people sing
for winter and spring.
Where piñon trees grow and red chile hatches,
cute cats and dogs are born (our cat Trouble)

Where we go to church and sing songs.

I am from the green cities and great buildings.
