“Only poetry has the capacity to create with each line, a new fate.”
In the Hawaiian culture, geckos are bearers of good luck. If you have ever visited Hawaii, you may have heard a gecko bark. This is the distinctive sound geckos make at night when they want to get your attention. Not knowing where this audible noise comes from the first time you encounter it, can be startling. You glance around the room or lanai (patio) and soon realize that the only thing there, other than you, is a three-inch lizard on the wall or ceiling, waiting patiently to tell you a story.
These small reptilians are the descendants of thousands of years of evolution. Keep your eyes on this amazing creature and you will see a world of struggle, beauty and survival unfold. They have much to reveal about life and the process of existence.
So the next time you are in Hawaii, relax and listen...perhaps the barking geckos are about to share with you, one of their stories.
Writer’s Digest Magazine Review:
“This book is attractive both inside and out. I enjoyed the way the poet used a good sense approach in the poems, employing a colloquial style and a simple direct address. In a poem like "Cafe Queen" the poet creates a set of characters within the intimate, known-world of the coffee shop. Upon setting the scene and populating it, the poet includes some nice, specific sensory details. I admire, in poems such as this one, the poet's ability to select certain concrete images and use them to make the poem richer. “Overall, a strong voice here.”
