Welcome to my new website!

I'm very excited to launch this new website this year because I have two collection coming out:  Hanami to be released in the first half of 2015 and The Minstrel of Belmont to be released in the second half of the year.  Together, they represent my poetry from the early 1990's through 2014, and form a running memoir of my travels and adventures.

Please visit this website to learn more about new releases and information about me and my writing and follow my blog,Maya and Sam's Dad.

Hanami (Aldrich Press, 2015) is Daryl Muranaka's first full-length collection and is available at  Containing poems from the earliest part of my career through my time in Japan on the JET Program and my settling in Massachusetts and meeting my wife and pretty much everything in between, these poems wander from place to place, and are the explorations of the unsettled man.
