Lāhaina Noon is the moment when tropical sun shines straight down. No shadows darken that astonishing moment of illumination, and Hawaiʻi is where it happens. Lāhaina Noon, Eric Paul Shaffer's fifth book, contains poems of Maui that reveal a clarity and sense of place as deep as lines of Billy Collins, profound as Gary Snyder, and direct as Jim Harrison.
