Where Children Sleep

Yesterday NPR posted a photo gallery from James Mollison’s book Where the Children Sleep.

Dong is 9 years old. He lives in the province of Yunnan in Southwest China, with his parents, sister and grandfather. He shares a room with his sister and parents. They are a poor family who own just enough land to grow their own rice and sugar cane.

Short Verse Friday: Workaday

Another morn of childish chores,
Preparing for the day.
And when we finally close the doors
My heart just drives away.
