A Collage

As we bought the three-storied house
With our dreams and desires
To provide my dad a serene life.
But it broke our hearts to lose him.
The day God called him home.
To feel his presence all the time
We hang a collage in the formal room
To keep him with us.
 
There he is swimming on the Arabian sea
Below there is Press cutting showing
India’s Independence movement
With Gandhi leading and his love
For doing Yoga with saints on Gomti’s bank.

There is a vacancy in the collage
Not sure, my world tour photos, cuttings
Front pages of my books will fit in
As my time comes.

    I am not sure which is more beautiful, the collage you so wonderfully described that I can picture it in my mind, or the flow of your words weaving everything together.
