For Yuyutsu RD Sharma

From the world- “away”
you’ll return to your home
hug your children
make love to your wife
take your own shower
drink your black tea
eat the food you’ve missed
read your newspaper
note the afternoon light—
how it has its own color
note the Kathmandu air—
how it has its own shape
see your close friends
pass out gifts to be envied
re-establish your bonds
to place
to time
and to old familiar comfort
only too soon,
to be leaving again
