HOME poem for Houston

10.00

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 Houston recently affected by Hurricane Harvey.

It's just a copy on glossy photo paper, but the words are like magic.

100% of the sales from this print will be donated to Together Rising and earmarked or the relief efforts in Houston.

Thank you for helping us help those in Houston. xo
