Synkroniciti is thrilled to welcome back poet David Ellis from Auroras & Blossoms with a magical poem, “When Night is Bare,” a Kindku based on Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “To a Skylark.” Kindku is a new form invented by David Ellis and Cendrine Marrouat based on the haiku. The Kindku is a short poem of seven lines and set syllabic pattern. It includes seven words that are taken from one specific source, in this case, Shelley’s masterpiece. “When Night is Bare” brings out the transcendent spiritual connotations of birds: flight, hope, song.
