Biography of Holden Solo

Holden Solo learned how to write poems from an old blind man he met while incarcerated in a Madagascan prison for a crime he did not commit. After serving three years, Solo was paroled. He then traveled to a Shaolin monastery high in the mountains of Myanmar where he learned the mastery of 'Jiyuritsu Haiku' from Brother Lars, the Head Abbot there.

Two years later, Brother Lars and most of the other monks were killed during an attack that was carried out under the cover of a horrendous snowstorm by ninja assassins of the Dark Hand Cult. Solo and a few others escaped, but the monastery was burnt to the ground.

After slumming around Southeast Asia for five years, Solo migrated back to his home in the United States where he became a vigilante crime-fighter, fighting against the nefarious schemes of the Dark Hand Cult and its ninja assassins.

On December 7th,2008 Holden Solo died while rescuing hostages from Somali pirates off the Horn of Africa.

The Cabrillo Highway

We'll drive
up the winding,
two lane road
all its length;

just you, me,
your luggage,
and my regrets.
