Absences

Smear out the last star.
No lights from the islands
Or hills. In the great square

    Like SNOW by Archibald Lampman, ABSENCES by Dom Moraes renders me solemn - in the way of truth, not mere sadness. Like a painter, Moraes imbues each line with crisp, dimensional description. I so admire his mastery of our language and the stark beauty of this poem.... the stromalites breathe...

    A pessimistic poem but lot of fine lines and beautifully created poem in such a good poem.

    Looks to be suitable for the present world to make a note of this poem! Wars are of no use as they have become old fashioned!

    I am awed, amazed, and so inspired to read this Masterpeice by Dom Moraes. The last two lines which are an epitome of the poem are also an epitome of perhaps the central seed of all human Philosphy. Individuality powers creativity and the difference stems from the absence of different strengths in each of us. A different way of saying presence of different strengths in each one of us. What a master craftsman.
