Day 9: Prompt: Shelter

“Where Children Shelter”

So many days
of my childhood
did I sit inside my room
the space of mine
that bed, that time
a place where I could bloom
Have you seen
the children’s rooms,
photos from around the world?
Nepal, Brazil
Japan, Tehran
little boys and little girls
Think of how
your own room felt
the walls that shaped your youth
then see the difference
an ocean makes;
there’s something we should do.
-A. Ault-
Inspired by this amazing collection from “Where Children Sleep”.
