Issue 2 is here!

Did we mention that Issue 2 is out now! You can find it here:

This issue features a great variety of local authors and artists. Straight from the table of contents, here’s the full line-up:

The Fall issue of Cobra Lily (#2!) begins with 2 poems by Kindi Fahrnkopf; “Thunder Warning” and “Rain” examine the powerful weather Fall often brings to our region.

Next, Dallion McGregor‘s “Full Moon Meditation” takes us inside the man inside him.

Kelly Waldin‘s poem “My tribe is getting smaller,” reprinted here, first appeared in the Takilma Common Ground (March 2014).

Up next are a number of photographer/poets, who each share both image and text. First, Kay Elaine Ekwall offers “In the Soft Silence” as well as two images from her plant photography.

Dave Dunbar wrote “Troutish Longings” after taking a picture of a rainbow trout in Mill Creek outside of Prospect, OR. He enhanced the trout image with colored foil. He shares both the poem and the picture.

Continuing the image/text connection, Anita Savio shares 4 of her “Night Visions” project, in which she writes a “praise poem” as a complement to her night-time nature photography.

Rich Norman offers his “Poem for Paul,” which yields new discoveries each time you read it.

Our featured artist is David Lorenz Winston. Well suited for our Fall issue is his portfolio of stunning nature photography of Fall in southern Oregon.

We conclude the issue with Cobra Lily‘s very first family! Mom Summer Wolf offers “Finding Me” and “Writing,” while daughter Juliette Wolf gives us “Great Big Cedar” and son Isaac Wolf describes “The Cave.”

Yes, quite an issue. Thanks so much to all of our contributors. And again, you can find the issue here:
