Fifty years ago this Spring, as a CalArts student (1972-73), I took a course with Marshall Ho’o, Professor of Oriental History. His tutorial on I Ching sparked my idea to craft 64 6-line poems shaped and inspired by the I Ching’s 64 hexagrams. Two years ago, after my previous 4 collections of poems had been published with multiple awards, I finally decided to take on this project. Now, my new collection, HEXAGRAMS: A POET’S JOURNEY THROUGH THE I CHING, is being published this month by LP Press@Wake Forest University. The book also includes 64 chromotints by artist Meredith Joy Merritt.
