Synkroniciti is overjoyed to welcome poet and writer Mariana Mcdonald from Atlanta, Georgia with two poems, Goose and Carrier Pigeons, which explore the connections between birds and humans, from the humorous to the noble. Birds are often at the edges of our consciousness but here they are center stage and teach us a great deal about ourselves.
