Absent Presence - Poem by Prathibha Nandakumar

Just that he was making good poems and reminded
us of the power of words and seduction of thoughts

Is it more than that or is it only my love of words
when his photos move and words cry and the coffee house
acts as the centre stage where folks make love eating apple pie

and his absent presence defines silence that speaks
