13-minute podcast interview with Middle Creek Publisher
--Two of Lynne's nature photographs published with Tiny Seed Literary Journal
April 2023--Lynne will be putting some of her photographs on the website store. Primarily wildlife.
A work in progress.
Lynne's new full-length poetry collection (published by Resource Publications, an imprint of Wipf and Stock Publishers) is available from online book retailers for $11!
--Two of Lynne's photos were chosen as the Nature Conservancy judges' "Favorites" in the climate category and the plant/fungi category in the 2022 International Photography Contest of over 100,000 entries. Didn't make the final winners list, but Lynne will have another nature photograph coming out in a journal in October and later in a book anthology.
The two photos from the Nature Conservancy Contest:
I sank my feet into mud,
walked closer to the falls I’d come for.
Knee-high in water, I stopped to listen.
I’d come to see the river
spill over along the rocks and run hard
down its vertical moss face with a sound
that I would want to remember.
Between these parted cliffs
granite holds sky and earth.
I am no one here.
But the rock retains heat
and the fish stay cool.
Pools of years gather
depths not known.
The water remains reliable,
inviting as I enter. Its breath,
The water I can taste now
as it touches. I sink into oblivion.
Overflow is everywhere.
