You and I

About the Poem

China
International Institute of Akron
& Project Learn
Design by Allison Faron

-for my grandmother

I am the growing grass,
and you are the nurturing dew
that kisses my blades in the morning.

I am the underground tunnel
and you are the famous archeologist
that discovered me
and brought me out of the dark.

I am the compass needle,
and you are the fully magnetic earth
that spins me
to point North.
