I wanna tell you today the story of John Lee Clark. He was born deaf and became blind in adolescence. His work has appeared in many publications and he is the author of a chapbook and editor of the definitive anthology, Deaf American Poetry, published by Gallaudet University Press. Currently, John is co-editor, with his wife, of Clerc Scar (www.clercscar.com), an arts site for the signing community. He lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, with his wife and three sons :)
I must admit I really liked one of his poems so I will quote it below, along with some pictures I made this Autumn @ Limanowa when we visited my fiancee's parents and the rest of the family (yes! he does quite have an extensive one ;) )
|The Pears Are Attacked By The Butterflies...|
by John Lee Clark
Hope you liked the poem and you appreciate what John is doing :) I know I do!
