Original poem written by farmette founder Loren Profit Smith letterpressed in black ink on size medium soft white paper.
Alongside the poem is an illustration of Baker's Globe Mallow, one of the wildflowers by which the poem was inspired. "There are certain species of wildflowers that only bloom after a forest fire: all that death and ash, the burning, opens up a space for the sun to reach in where it never could before. And in the charred earth those seeds crack open, they unfurl, they grow, they lift up their faces and soak in the light."
