Synkroniciti is excited to share the work of Auroras & Blossoms, a platform for positive art founded by David Ellis and Cendrine Marrouat. We feature four artistic forms which they created. These forms have a common ancestor in the haiku but embrace new combinations of genre and media.
In our upcoming issue, we feature two of David’s poems, “Sheltering,” an illuminating Pareiku about the connection between nature and motherhood, and “The Truth Inside the Nest,” a Kindku about the power of reading and books. Pareiku are three-line poems that link two unrelated images, in this case a couple of gorgeous 18th -century prints. A Kindku is a seven-line poem that draws inspiration (in the form of borrowed words) from an earlier work. Here, David draws his from the poetry of Wallace Stevens.
Would you like to see these inspiring new forms and learn more about them–maybe even write your own? Please subscribe or purchase the issue here: https://synkroniciti.com/the-magazine/.
