IN ABSENCE

……in absence
birth of many thoughts
spring forth
from the hearts
of solitary skeletons
beating the lone voice

……of a simple poet
wearing a tattered coat of words
held by flimsy threads……
of a philosopher
clutching a moss covered stone
yet to see the light of day……
of a scientist
ranting a string of theories
beyond a reality felt……
of a sage
meditating in a mirage
and seeing the desert of soul……
of an artist
mixing a rainbow palette
to the greys of colourless world……
of a guitar player
strumming three overstretched strings
a song echoing its own tune……
of a gardener
tilling clay with a rusty hoe
in the hope of sustenance……
of a dreamer
dreaming of a better world
in a landscape of ghosts……

……in absence
a (wo)man
searches through a maze of shadows
for one
such as you.
