November 22, 2021 – Quite excited to announce that I have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize in Poetry by Synkronicity Magazine for poem “Fireflies.” This is quite an honor, especially since not only did “Fireflies” win Synkroniciti Magazine’s ‘Transcendence” Poetry Contest this past October, but this will be my first Pushcart nomination ever. It’s a gooooood day.

October 23, 2021 – Poem “Fireflies” will be featured at Synkroniciti Magazine on November 30, 2021 (in issue #10) as the winner of their ‘Transcend’ Poetry Contest.
Synkroniciti Magazine says, “Synkroniciti is honored to select Texan poet David Estringel’s “Fireflies” as the winner of our “Transcend” poetry contest. Lush and vulnerable, “Fireflies” invites us to gaze in wonder at the joy of childhood–that brief time when we are carefree and unaware of sorrow. Hope, memory, and regret weave themselves together in a bittersweet tribute to playfulness. David’s poetry is full of sensual music that celebrates the simple miracles of being alive, all the while acknowledging the agony of their inevitable passing.”
