I am from building blocks and candy jar with no candy in it,

from  baby dolls and a piggy bank.

I am from the room being attacked by a storm.

and moist to moist to moist.

I am from the silk flower.

who shows all her beauty at one time.

I am from the telescope to the fish tank.

from Li and Tang

I am from “Hurry up!” and “Faster Faster!”

and from staying in bed as long as possible.

from sitting as long as possible.

I am from looking at the pedestrian with the telescope on the rooftop.

I am from grandpa and great grandma

from salted dumplings that I hate

from his death because of diabetes.

and from watching billiards and playing poker

Digging a hole in the playground and waiting for it to become fossils.

I am from those moments  

From an empty candy jar

I liked how you used descriptive words to help me visualize what you were talking about. I also enjoyed the way you used dialogue.
