Synkroniciti’s Featured Artist for the day is poet D.R. James. We will be featuring two of his poems in our March 1st issue: “Wait for It,” a different sort of forecast than we get from the weather channel; and “Now,” which explores a way of seeing that takes in the details of the moment, rather than seeing our present only as a continuation of what has come before or a bridge to the future.
If you would like to read these clear-eyed, contemplative poems, please subscribe or buy the issue. Thank you!
D. R. James, a small-college prof for, lo, these last 35+ years, splits his time between contemplation in his deck chair and contemplation in his recliner, each while looking out into the woods east of Saugatuck, Michigan. He and his psychotherapist wife, when not working, decking, or reclining, tend grandchildren and cycle the country roads leading to Lake Michigan. His latest of nine collections are Flip Requiem (Dos Madres, 2020), Surreal Expulsion (Poetry Box, 2019), and If god were gentle (Dos Madres, 2017), and his micro-chapbook All Her Jazz is free, fun, and printable-for-folding at Origami Poems Project.
