Per Diem/Haiku of the Day for April 2022 features Guest Editor Maxianne Berger’s collection on the theme of Presence and Absence. This is what Maxianne has to say by way of introduction to this theme:
presence but absence but presence but
The perception of absence, the absence of perception, perception through absence, and all possible permutations and combinations. We perceive what isn’t there, we sense what cannot be perceived from our vantage of time or space. Presence and absence, appearance and disappearance manifest themselves through transposition, through synaesthesia, imagination, and word play.
