My family is in the military
Where goodbyes are the norm
Where the meaning of home is a mystery
Because it is not where I was born.
I am from evergreens and roses
A hipster sort of haven
Where bridges span the town
Oregon is where I built my foundation.
I am from cornfields and yellow brick roads
Where you see sunflowers and tornadoes
A click of the heel will take you home
Kansas is where my family grows.
I am from peach trees and bumblebees
From red dirt and hay rides
A place where back roads free the soul
Georgia is where my family still resides.
I am from sunshine and rainbows
Where the swell is always rad
A place where board shorts are constantly worn under palm trees
Hawaii is where I was a high school grad.
Maybe home is a place where my heart feels most at peace
I’m thankful to have traveled with my family
It has built me piece by piece.
I used Adobe Express because it felt more user friendly when creating a poem. Similarly, I enjoy using the gliding picture tool in the app because it almost reminds me of a memory. When discussing different memories from different places I have lived, the gliding tool felt the most fitting. I think Microsoft Sway would be the most beneficial when presenting about a specific topic; however Adobe Express seemed the most helpful in terms of this assignment.
