Synkroniciti is honored to welcome poet Tamara Madison from sunny southern California, with four wonderful poetic studies on birds. Loneliness brings us the melancholy sounds of the dove, while The Mogul introduces us to a domineering hummingbird. An ardent House Finch and a rowdy group of crows in Not a Murder round out the mix. Tamara captures the personality of each bird with delicacy and meticulous attention to detail, so much so that we can see a great deal of ourselves in these feathered friends.
Please subscribe or purchase the issue here to read Tamara’s exquisite poetry. The issue, our ninth, debuts September 1st with the theme of “birds.”
Tamara Madison is the author of the chapbook The Belly Remembers, and two full-length volumes of poetry, Wild Domestic and Moraine, all published by Pearl Editions. Her work has appeared in Chiron Review, The Worcester Review, A Year of Being Here, Nerve Cowboy, the Writer’s Almanac and many other publications. A swimmer, dog lover and native of the southern California desert, she is thrilled to have recently retired from teaching English and French in a Los Angeles high school, and more thrilled still to be awaiting a second grandchild into the world.
