Poems of a Lifetime

May 19, 2016

It was that time again. My two year renewal for my website at GoDaddy. Am I the only one who hates their software? It’s not user friendly. It takes forever to accomplish the simplest of changes. But I have prevailed. I have updated my website and renewed for another two years. Wow. And it only took the better part of two days of my life. I got off easy.

So here it is–my new and improved website. Yes, it is not great, but it is a lot better than it was two years ago when I started it. And yes, I do want to know about errors, omissions and things that don’t make sense. I would not be offended but actually grateful to hear about them.

You know I would really rather be writing . .

Kids Write About Peace

April 24, 2016

What does a child know about peace? Or poetry? Sixty students wowed us with their innocent verses while 250 people watched. This is not childish babble.  They wrote haikus and sistenas! Haiku, yes, well, they are short and could be called easy.  But sistena–that complex form with dramatic intricate stanza repetition! I’ve never written one in my entire poet career.

The Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Poem Competition nurtures a steady flow of budding Hawaiian poets. On April 22, we enjoyed hearing Maui island winners speak their poems and receive their prizes.  The poetry contest celebrates and awards winners on all islands. I can hardly wait until next year.

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.
