From the Spider Bone Diaries: Poems and Songs
"Kaneohe poet Hamasaki ... presents a subtle elegance in the rhythms of the language." --Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 13 January 2002 "The finest poetry is a gift of exuberant experience rendered as subtle, and soaring, enlightenments.... Richard Hamasaki's recent collection of poems and songs is just such a gift." --Honolulu Advertiser "Hamasaki's work gathers into itself traditions, ancient and contemporary ... and returns them in passionate new forms.... As novelist Albert Wendt has written of the collection: 'The poems' fragrances of aloha and forgiveness penetrate your skin down to your moa and make you quiver with joy at being alive, here and now, in this place and magnificent Ocean.'" --Honolulu Weekly
