About Me

My photo
Born and raised on O'ahu, I now live in Maxvorstadt. As the resident poet at EcoHealth, my verse finds inspiration these days in the specter of future pandemics. For my dissertation at Amerika-Institut (LMU), I'm anatomizing the prosody of E. A. Robinson's sonnets. I also tutor writing, teach English, and lead a book club.

Frog Poem

by Matsuo Bashō
Translated by R. H. Blyth

The old pond:
a frog jumps in, –
the sound of the water.
