Poetry on Hawaiian Air

April 6, 2016

Maui is so like a small town.  I will be interviewed on 88.5 radio tomorrow morning to discuss poetry and read some of my work in celebration of National Poetry Month.  I was invited as a member of Maui Live Poets Society here on island. What a great opportunity, one that would never happen in the big cities that I’ve lived in. It’s a live show so I hope I don’t do anything stupid. If I do I’ll just write a poem about it.

April Celebration

April 5, 2016

You knew it was coming. April is National Poetry Month. Here is my contribution to the glory of expressing life through words:

If February celebrates lasting love, April can lament love slipping away. . . drop by drop.

DRUNK IN THE AFTERNOON

the hole in my heart

like cork pulled from a bottle

a glass tunnel to wine once within

sides so smooth

never together to knit

 never to meet

everything

once inside

gone

A New Poetry Cover

March 3, 2016

Since I’ve given myself the whole year of 2016 to publish my collection of poems, I have played with options every step of the way.  I’ve completely rearranged the order which led to a new title and cover.  I have a recurring hummingbird theme in my verse so this seemed appropriate.

Words Mist the Air

January 29, 2016

The little room at Dog-Eared Pages Bookstore was packed last night. A space full of visual art and vibrant words. I read three poems from Porcelain with an intro about Cinthia Albers the creator of the verses and soon-to-be bride. It was a great evening.
