It’s time to go back there again.

Dew on the grass, moist ground,
Monsoon rain, Roaring Ganges,
Grounded ginger and pepper,
Hot tea in kettle.
Narrow road, long mountain trail,
the wide deep valleys.
The old house with stone roof,
Mud walls and wooden pillars.
Sitting by the fire place,
Turmeric milk in winters.
Walnut tree across the house,
Garden with plum and peaches.
The fresh smell of pine trees.
In summer the wild flowers,
Raw mango on the roof top,
Wild berries,leeches
Lime and mint juice


It’s time to go back there again.
