Small Town

Hello to my small town
To the hills and the beach
That always made me feel home

The familiar smells bring me back
To spaghetti for dinner
And dinner for six

Days filled with swimming and poker
Using cookies for chips
And bluffing our way to win

With a marching band
Parading itself in the wide open community field
Rightfully taking pride in their hard work

I’ve grown up with people
Who grew up with my grandparents
Telling me stories about them

Hello to my small town
Where I discover more of myself
With each cherished visit

  1. “Ive grown up with people who grew up with my grandparents telling me stories about them” – I like the rhythm of that . I like how circularly you’ve explained it. You may say your blog’s chaotic and that you don’t know how you made it big on WordPress, but it’s probably because you’re a very good writer , whatever you write. You have a wonderful way with words.
