       This is based on what a friend of mine said it was like visiting her ancestral home in China. I put myself in her place though.

    -------------------------------------------


    I have an immigrant face.
    In two generations,
    it has not lost the charm of the old world
    or gained that new world look.
    I still have a stout peasant body;
    I'm a clone of my great-grandmother:
    her pointed nose and chin,
    her deep-set, dark eyes
    her dark, wavy mane,
    and now as I revisit her home
    and walk in her footsteps,
    I nearly drown in nostalgia
    as though I'd lived her life.

      Nothin wrong here, I guess, but it's so darn personal. I kinda like it, but I can't relate. I do, though, or rather have thought about myself with respect to the presence of my ancestry in my appearance. I'm mostly Swiss German, with a good bit of Welsch and Cherokee. Like you care.

      This is beautiful in the thoughts it provokes in all its readers, the way you wonder about those that came before you, establishing your family, and with that values, beliefs etc. The words are simple and add to the strength of the piece, very well written.

      the topic is lovely; blood history. intriguing. suggestion: perhaps end the poem with more of a original spin, in the same way it began; "and step into her life". or something. hope that helps. good job! =]
