New Book Available: GHOST TOWN POETRY

Chris Luna and Toni Partington, shining lights on the Vancouver poetry skyline, have published a beautiful new volume titled "Ghost Town Poetry."  I have the honor of three published poems in this book; here is one, an acrostic written while contemplating the gorgeous hibiscus blossoms on Kauai:

How does it happen, this
Insane riot of color, this orange
Blaze flung face forward
Into a world pale as washed sand?

So little time; such a strong story
Can only be conveyed by this: 
Understanding Orange, the rebel
Statement shouted toward the sun.

By Sheryl Clough

You can find out more about Chris and Toni on their site --
take a look and consider ordering the book!
