My thanks goes to Rockvale Review Founding Editor Sandy Coomer (and her editorial team Nancy Posey, Roseann St. Aubin, Christine Fraser, and Laurie Kolp). Photographer Michelle Casady pairs photos with each poem. Following each pairing is a note by Michelle describing her process of choosing. Here’s the link where you can either buy a print copy or access the links to the individual poems and photographs: Rockvale Review, Issue Two.
