“Poplar Applause” Appears in Gyroscope Review First Issue

Read the haiku-like verse in Gyroscope Review’s inaugural issue

and all of the fine and enjoyable poetry featured by the editors Constance Brewer and Kathleen Cassen Mickelson.

I’m honored to find the two-liner “Poplar Applause” right at the front of the issue.

Black Sand Beach - Waiapanapanap, Maui, HI

Black Sand Beach (Poem)

I’ve seen a black sand beach
stranger than any foreign world
where King Poseidon draped in seaweed
once walked upon the Earth–

a black sand beach where steel-colored waves
wash up to shining, ashen stones
nested beneath charcoal plateaus that break out
all over in lime green leaves.
