Making a poem can be a way to get your mind clear when you’re facing a major crisis. My friend (George) Cameron Keys was the featured poet at one of our Maui Live Poets sessions at the Makawao Library.
To help him read his work, he asked another friend, Paul Janes-Brown, a noted actor in our local theater. Cameron said he was afraid that if he read his own work he would start crying. Paul’s reading of this poem got the rest of us in the audience misty-eyed.
