Synkroniciti is happy to welcome back Australian poet Miles Hitchcock with three poems: “Opposites,” about the futility of lines in the sand and the illusion of control; “The Silent Forest,” which encourages us to embrace not only our wildness, but wariness as well; and “Flow,” a meditation on existence. We know now the building blocks of our bodies, but what are we, who are we, and why are we here? Miles has a great sense of wonder and awe coupled with a scientific, logical approach. He’s given to a clear-sighted restraint and understatement that make you lean in to what he is expressing. The result is powerful.
Read his perceptive poetry in the new issue of Synkroniciti, “Flow.” Please subscribe or purchase the issue here: https://synkroniciti.com/the-magazine/.
