Synkroniciti is excited to welcome writer and poet Nikita Helewa, based in Toronto, with two delicious poems, “Faintly” and “Bath.” The first is an homage to Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Aurora Leigh, an epic poem in nine books that tells the story of a woman writer seeking to live a fulfilling life and write her magnum opus against the pressures and expectations of society. The second, “Bath” records an episode of musing in the tub, contemplating the ephemeral nature of life and the selectiveness of memory. Nikita’s poems combine the romantic and sensual with the rational and aware, creating a unique atmosphere which surprises thought in transition.
Read Nikita’s enchanting poetry and enjoy this new poetic voice in Synkroniciti’s “Flow” issue, Vol 4, No. 2. Purchase the issue or subscribe here: https://synkroniciti.com/the-magazine/.
