Infinite Possibilities

by Pedalling Poetry

A beautiful poem by Irfan Merchant, our first poet-in-residence, as he leaves us for now. We wish him well. the_hanging_gardens_of_babylon

The Hanging Gardens

Absolute absence I am:

not the absence of presence

nor the presence of absence –

knowable in my own absence,

unknowable in my presence

between each word, each line,

each page, each book, each thing;

the fullness of earthly delights

and infinite possibilities.

Irfan Merchant
