the warmth of saffron milk
anticipation of unscraped henna
allured by the parrot’s flirtatious whistles
i wonder which of us is caged

like gathering clouds only tease
it is your laughter that deceives

was the pedestal not high enough?

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this wisdom poem.

    The meanings of the word-symbols, married to the art which accompanies them, paints a powerfully beautiful depiction of the energy with which we seek, seek, and seek.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
