Pretty flowers in my country are for me Like pink butterflies That smile at the sun
For several months, Quebec illustrator Rogé prepared a series of portraits of Haitian children. Students of Camp Perrin wrote the accompanying poems, which create, with flowing consistency, Haiti, my country.
These teenaged poets use the Haitian landscape as their easel. The nature that envelops them is quite clearly their main subject.
While misery often storms through Haiti in the form of earthquakes, cyclones, or floods, these young men and women see their surrounding nature as assurance for a joyful, confident future.
