PHOENIX RISING will be performing material from their recently-released
CD, 'Whispers', at the wonderful Listen + Be Heard Café in Vallejo.
Thanks to the fine production abilities - not to mention poetic prowess
- of Tony Mims and Martha Cinader, COPUS has had the great fortune to
perform many times in Vallejo. Drum wizard Greg MCRay will be in the
mix, along with guest poets who will be invited to 'jam' a poem with
the musicians. Royal will not be there since he will be covering Reggae
on the River events (see below). We are a busy group! 818 Marin Street.
9pm. $5 cover. www.cinader.com or 707-554-4540 for information.
2. REGGAE ON THE RIVER - August 5-7:
Royal will be representing both Copus Multimedia and World Rhythm Magazine
this weekend as a member of the press. We know he'll bring back lots
of inside interview information from the stars of the reggae world.
(We also know he'll have a great time being renewed in the river!).
3. PHOENIX RISING IN SAN DIEGO - August
11-14: The National Flute Association (www.nfaonline.org) is holding
its annual convention in San Diego this year. Phoenix Rising will be
in attendance as their debut CD, 'Whispers', will be sold at the Flute
World booth (www.fluteworld.com). In addition, Monica has landed a couple
of gigs for the duo while they are in town. Friday, August 12th, Phoenix
Rising will play at Twigg's (www.twiggs.org) and on Saturday, August
13th, they will play at Hancock Café. If you have folks in the
San Diego area, please pass along this information!

As y'all know -
COPUS ("Creation Of Peace Under the Stars") is a spoken word/music
ensemble that has been receiving outstanding reviews from live performances
in the Bay Area, Nashville, and Los Angeles. COPUS is classical with
a beat, rap without violence, hip hop with a degree, jazz with lyrics.
“It is my belief that this music could be legendary if given the
opportunity to thrive.” (Michael Allison, MusicDish.com)
We encourage all artists to attend this event!

world culture, including a column about arts in the Bay Area written

8. POETRY SECTION. Today we would like
to share some of the haikus from Forrest's collection entitled '5-7-5
for God'. Hope they inspire you!
Open my eyes to
See Your signs and open my
Heart to follow them.
Your imagination is
You are what you dream
Emptiness binds us
Without the empty spaces
We are locked apart
The thought between thoughts.
The breath between breaths. The life
Between birth and death.
Accept the future
In all its uncertainties
A gift to open
2005 Forrest Hainline III
5-7-5 for God
Stay healthy and strong!
