“Jill Jennings’ poetry, like the pluméria she praised in Dead Man’s Flower, is living experience that, paradoxically, is more fragrant once fallen and pressed. Blessed with a keen sensibility, a questing intellect, and a wry sense of humor, Jill, like a genial sorcerer, shows us how to make magic out of our everyday lives.”
Dan Veach, Founder of Atlanta Review, author of Elephant Water and Lunchboxes
In this, her third book of poetry, poet Jill Jennings recounts her years living in Kihei, Maui, where she finds herself immersed in Hawaiian culture, in which respect for the ‘āina, the environment, is the most important thing. Come along with her and find out who is a haole and who is a kama ‘āina; taste a Hawaiian mixed plate lunch and sip some pineapple wine. Experience a tree in Lahaina that takes up two whole city blocks and visit the best beaches in the world. In this new collection of poems, every day is pau hana Friday and we all look better in an aloha shirt!
