In an all-too-brief life and literary career, Wayne Kaumualii Westlake produced a substantial body of poetry. He broke new ground as a poet, translated Taoist classical literature and Japanese haiku, interwove perspectives from his Hawaiian heritage into his writing and art, and published his work locally, regionally, and internationally. The present volume, long overdue, includes nearly two hundred of Westlake's poems - most unavailable to the public or never before published.

The poems run the whole gamut of emotions... and do so with immaculate and measured control of language and imagery... this one collection, in my reckoning, establishes Westlake as one of Hawai'i and the Pacific's major poets. - Albert Wendt
