Book Details

The poetry of Sonia Lewis is spiritually imagined and deeply imbued with the empathy born of a remarkable journey. Her writing is informed by her experiences living in four separate cultures, as well as her keen intellect and observant heart. Warmth and hope shine through the darkness. – Laura Foster 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 Centre

Between “Heartache and “Hope” Lies Uncertainty.
That Space Where Painful Memories Find a Quiet Place to Settle.

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. The murders of innocent men, abduction of babies to mention a few. 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.
