HOME poem for Santa Rosa

25.00

This poem was originally inspired by my son's preschool teacher, Stacy, and her study with the children of the poet Langston Hughes.

At breakfast, I would ask Grady this simple question: "What do you think home is?" and he would rattle off these one line answers. I would jot them down in my notebook. At the end of the week, we had enough sentences to construct a simple poem that still brings tears to my eyes. All I have ever wanted is to feel like a home that walks. Children are so wise + wonderful, right?

My son, Grady, is now 14 years old. He has given me permission to reproduce his poem, which he typeset at a local letterpress co-op, and use the copied image as part of this project to raise funds for the people of Santa Rosa recently affected by the firestorm that devasted their city and surrounding areas.

You will receive a simple color copy of the poem on glossy photo paper. It's not super fancy, but it is more a token of appreciation for your donation to this worthy cause.

100% of the sales from this print will be donated to a local charity and earmarked for the relief efforts in Santa Rosa and those affected by the fires. I am also in the process of looking for a person or organization to match these funds.

Thank you for helping me make a difference in my community. xo
