Virginia Howard, Editor of THEMA, said, \"James Penha is able to mold exotic topics
into poignant universal truths.\"

"I often feel more like a painter than a poet," says Penha. "I see what's horribly
and beautifully in front of my eyes-only peripherally visible to passersby-and try
to frame those images with colors sometimes bolder than real (sometimes black and
white), with a composition that leads an audience in time through a narrative, and
with discernible brushstrokes proving that some one, at least, has noticed."

A native New Yorker, James Penha has lived for the past sixteen years in Indonesia.
No Bones to Carry, the latest volume of Penha's poetry, has just been published by
New Sins Press. Among the most recent of his many other published works are an

Collection (Fabulist Flash Publishing) and Only the Sea Keeps: Poetry of the Tsunami
(Bayeux Press). Penha edits a website for current-events poetry at New Verse News.
