wise monkeys

amidst muted colors
we saw no evil
blaring sound but
we heard no evil
with ambiguous words
no evil we spoke
heads buried in the sand
wise monkeys we are

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for sharing this poem with us which brings us to reflect on the seasons of hearing, seeing, and speaking.

    All good wishes,



      1. Yes, I did get that, Sonya! I was calling out the men who lead our various countries painting a rosier than real picture of the world today, as well as most of us who are immune to / inured against what’s happening all around….. :)


I would love to have your thoughts
