This #NationalPoetryMonth, poetry is growing in all kinds of unexpected places, including Houston H-E-B locations in Montrose, San Felipe, Buffalo Speedway, and Bunker Hill. ?
These poems, written by young WITS students, remind us to honor and celebrate the everyday gifts of our given world. The next time you’re shopping there during the month of April, go on a scavenger hunt with the family and see if you can find them all!
If you’re at H-E-B San Felipe, check out the “poet-tree,” where you can add your own verse to the tree. This is a DIY version of the poet-trees over at Eleanor Tinsley Park at Buffalo Bayou, created in partnership with artist Nicola Parente and The Buffalo Bayou Partnership. Big thanks to Meagan, Community Coordinator at San Felipe for the DIY poet-tree. It looks great!
Thank you for your in-kind support Houston Arts Alliance, Texas Commission on the Arts, and Copy.com. And thank you to H-E-B for finding a home for these poems. We couldn’t this without you!! #houston #poetry #grocerypoems
