Synkroniciti welcomes back Texan poet David Estringel with three wistful poems about the mutability of life: “Fireflies,” which won our poetry contest, “Pomegranates,” and “Mother’s Milk.” David’s imagery is always a sensory treat and deeply vivid. “Fireflies” draws a poignant parallel between the transitory light of the lightning bug and human childhood. “Pomegranates” celebrates the sweetness of life while acknowledging that this sweetness has a season. “Mother’s Milk” is a breathless lament for a deceased parent, looking for the “bitter that has become so sweet.”
