Bridgeable Shores: Selected Poems (1969-2001) by Luis Cabalquinto
Bridgeable Shores: Selected Poems and New (1969-2001) is the first U.S. publication of the work of the revered Filipino-American poet Luis Cabalquinto. This long overdue collection features the compassion, wisdom and well-being gained from the mulit-ethnic worlds the author inhabits. Comprising four sections in total, it is the first two that form the heart of the book: "Morningland," which features poems inspired by the Philippines, and "Sun on Ice," inspired by New York. By choosing this structure of two separate but "bridgeable" shores, Cabalquinto embodies the expatriate Filipino as poet and celebrates the possibility of crosscultural harmony.
