    Pulitzer Winner & Former National Poet Laureate Robert Hass: Poems and Poets

    in Entertainment

    Host Linda Rez and cohost, Barbara Davis, from Books, So Many Books, have an in-depth conversation with former National Poet Laureate Robert Hass about his life and poetry.


    Robert Hass was born in San Francisco in 1941. He attended St. Mary's College and Stanford University. His books of poetry include Time and Materials, for which he received the Pulitzer Prize in 2007 and the National Book Award in 2008; Sun Under Wood, for which he received the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1996; Human Wishes; Praise, for which he received the William Carlos Williams Award in 1979; and Field Guide, which was selected by Stanley Kunitz for the Yale Younger Poets Series.


    Hass also worked with Czeslaw Milosz to translate a dozen volumes of Milosz's poetry, including the book-length Treatise on Poetry and, most recently, A Second Space. His translations of the Japanese haiku masters have been collected in The Essential Haiku: Versions of Basho, Buson, and Issa. His books of essays include Twentieth Century Pleasures: Prose on Poetry, which received the National Book Critics Circle Award for criticism in 1984, and Now and Then: The Poet's Choice Columns, 1997-2000.


    From 1995 to 1997 he served as poet laureate of the United States. He lives in northern California with his wife, the poet Brenda Hillman, and teaches English at the University of California at Berkeley.

    Kim Weiss & Edie Weinstein, Nature as a Conduit to Connection

    in Self Help

    How did a long awaited love relationship launch a book about the romantic images of sunrises and unsets? 


    Join Edie as she chats with Kim Weiss, author of Sunrise Sunset:  52 Weeks of Awe and Wonder 


    As a photographer, Kim had become fascinated with the views of sunrises and sunsets from her 14th floor terrace and snapped pictures of them. It was when her partner John surprised her with haiku that he wrote to 'paint word pictures,' to highlight them that a brilliant idea was born. The book incorporates her images, as well as quotes by notable writers and teachers, sharing how they are moved by this simple and profound daily occurrence. She invites people to take their own photos and share them on her Facebook page, using nature as a conduit to connect people all over the world.


    Kim has been in the book industry for many years and coaches other writers aspiring to be bestselling authors. As a storyteller, Kim has contributed to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, The Ultimate Bird Lover and Arielle Ford's, Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Soul. 


    Edie Weinstein, LSW is a colorfully creative journalist, inspiring transformational speaker, licensed social worker, interfaith minister, BLISS Coach and the author of The Bliss Mistress Guide To Transforming The Ordinary Into the Extraordinary. She calls herself an Opti-Mystic who sees the world through the eyes of possibility. www.liveinjoy.org

    Haiku Poems Part 2 : A Short Poem Can get you thinking too!

    in Poetry

    Welcome to Life From all Sides. This show is about exploring life from every angle. You can't examine anything by looking at one side.


    Today's show is about poetry.  We create what we love and this is a new form of poetry for me.  It is called Haiku.


    A haiku poem consists of three lines, with the first and last line having 5 moras, and the middle line having 7. A mora is a sound unit, much like a syllable, but is not identical to it. Since the moras do not translate well into English, it has been adapted and syllables are used as moras.  From (http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples-of-haiku-poems.html)


    This is my second attempt at this great art form.
