Growing Dreams

I came across this poem a few years ago.  It is by a local poet whom I have had visit my school a couple of times.  It's makes me think of some of my former students.

"Where I Live"

Where I live
there are no trees
to climb, but I still
reach for the stars.
My dreams take root
in concrete,
and my branches
lift the sky.

by Carole Boston Weatherford
(from Sidewalk Chalk, pg 31)
