Synkroniciti is honored to welcome writer and poet Sara McAulay from Oakland, California, with two gripping poems filled with narrative power, high wire and In Animal Darkness (4). The first contemplates a flock of nameless birds high above a lake, while the second is a gritty observation of a raptor in flight from a precarious viewpoint. Sara has a talent for active description and sensual detail that shines in both pieces.
