Synchronicity: The Oracle of Sun Medicine by Tureeda Mikell is a poetic-prose journey into sun medicine, filled with a plethora of questions for elitist patriarchs, political satirists, and those interested in interspecies communication—from “son” to “sun” or “joule” to “jewel,” as in “Spell’s Labyrinth.” “The Oracle” alarms time that signs body’s mind-heart with, “What does love got to do with it, where is the respect…” in “Worship Warship,” to political prose honoring the Black Panthers. Synchronicity connects scenes seen and unseen spheres with greater journeys from the profane to the mysterious that contracts taboos often interwoven with society’s relationships to our winged cousins, stars, and ancestors trying to heal us all from the great beyond.
