the glances we share on the packed train . . .

swallow flight

 

Tanya McDonald

 

As the world gets increasingly loud, not just aurally but visually as well (especially with the proliferation of technology and capitalisation of attention), I focus my selections around ‘intimacies’. Moments of quietude that involve a reckoning with intimacy in its various forms and along varied axes: with the self, with others, with material objects, with places, with thoughts and values, with the environment around us. To be intimate is to acknowledge the depth of silence, to allow it to settle into the self, and sometimes even to be overwhelmed by it. The ku I have chosen for this month explore what it means to be intimate in different ways.

Thank you for being our next guest editor, Iqra. The theme is powerful and we look forward to re-discovering moments close to our hearts.

This is my first here...indeed a powerful theme...feeding silence into our core is so difficult in this chaotic world n when innerself is juggling with myriad things to have an assortment of moments becomes important to keep ourselves sane...Great poem n a great choice to convey the message

Lovely contrast between travelling somewhere, sandwiched too tightly between strangers, and the freedom of a swallow.
