Dangerous Woman - Poetry for the Ageless Product Description:
Age Does Not Define Us. Life Does.
We are the dangerous women...
Who never say no to sunsets, sunrises, evening strolls or double martinis.
We are the women who speak to you, in supermarkets over apples and cabbages, making you wish you could follow us home.
We are so damn demanding, you wish we had never met, yet you know, we are the only poetry you have.
We are the women you should avoid, if you don’t believe in Peter Pan, and the first star of the evening skies.
But pour us wine as the sun sets low, and we will hand you the key, to things you don’t know.
In this, her fourteenth book, Frances H. Kakugawa assembles a collection of poetry spanning sixty years—previously published works and new poems, grappling with answers to life’s existential questions, the need to understand our relationship with nature and the world beyond the self.
Frances H. Kakugawa is an award-winning, internationally published author of fourteen books, and a regular column, “Dear Frances,” for caregivers in the Hawaii Herald. She conducts poetry readings, workshops and lectures throughout the country. In her sessions for adults, Kakugawa shares with honesty and openness the lessons learned from caregiving. Programs for hospital and elder- healthcare professionals focus on humanizing their clinical skills. In her children’s workshops, Frances introduces students to poetry as a way to explore and embrace their elders and other aspects of their lives.
