Soular Rainbows, a collection of poetry by retired Hawai‘i physician Shay Bintliff, is a prismatic refraction of the author’s life—reflections and colorful bursts of light manifested in poetic expression. While Doc Shay is known for her sense of humor—she was a childhood vaudevillian and writes the weekly humor column “Laughter Therapy” for West Hawaii Today—her poetry explores not just the joyful aspects of life and love, but the sadness, pain and fear of missed opportunities, absent loved ones and aging, as well as introspective musings on questions without easy answers. Her book is inspired by and dedicated to the memory of her granddaughter, Ilieana, who lost a four-year battle with cancer at age eleven. Doc Shay donates the proceeds from book sales to Camp Ānuenue, a summer camp on O‘ahu for children with cancer.
