Laiakini Waqanisau, (aka Lai) has always loved poetry and started writing at the age of 13 whilst in Middle School in Manhattan, New York. In High School back in Fiji, Lai only managed to publish one poem. Lai inspiration comes from reading the Book of Psalms for its poetic inspirations, Books of the New Testament for its thought on humanity, both in the Bible.

As a student of history Lai has travelled, places such as the Great Wall of China - Badling, Beijing, Museums, Castles and Cathedrals of medieval kingdoms in Wales, England and Scotland.

In China Lai traced the footsteps of its history through the Tiananmen square, touched the Gates of Heavenly Peace and watched as the city of Beijing morphed into the modern city it is today. A visit to Israel and Egypt has been the highlight of these historical visits serving inspiration to the poems that you will find.

As a husband and father, Lai's legacy will be through his family and children who will hopefully love poetry.
