Black History Month Meditation 1: Langston Hughes

Reading Langston Hughes 

And about his vocational drifting 

I have a thing for the wanderer 

My own career meanders 

Weaving back and forth 

Across green fertile fields 

Vibrancy within each step 

I’m spending Black History Month exploring black ports and their great works. Langston Hughes came to mind first. I’m also thinking of Maya Angelou and Toni Morrison. Do you have ideas? I’d love to hear about up-and-coming poets.
