In this well-crafted book, Sonia Lewis brings to life the ills of the world, society’s woes and the pain which results from them, as in “A Day of Infamy,” a poem about George Floyd that will forever burn in America’s psyche.
“In the splintered silence between heartache and hope lies uncertainty. It is that space where painful memories find a quiet place to settle,” she writes. “Therein lies a brief respite, but true equilibrium is elusive. So, one tries again and leans heavily into hope. However, daily events shred any semblance of normalcy, like the murder of innocent men, so I write, hoping that my passion on the page will encourage others to express buried emotions. A bankrupt heart is a barren place, so I write.”
“Profound Universality come to mind when I think of Sonia Lewis. In the forty years I have known this remarkable woman, her experience as a nurse, as well as her keen sense of humor and humanity make for poetic treasure.” – S. Howard Wittels, M.D. Chairman of the Department of Anesthesia Mount Sinai Medical Center
