Where I'm From

By: 
Xiu

I am from Fuzhou.

I'm from a special, difficult and loud language.

I'm from locally grown jasmine tea and rice from water fields.

I'm from sweet potatoes and Wobian (a kind of rice soup).

I'm from the sound of flip-flops on the muddy road.

I'm from hide-n-seek and ghost stories under a full starry sky.

I'm from eating, with the pig laying down right under the table.

I'm from the neighbors gossiping and working together outside in the summer night.

I'm from a small, beautiful island belonging to Fuzhou.
