home again

been home for a week or so
feels like i had never left
took all my stuff out of packings and wrappings
and laid it all out again
strange tpo be back amongst my own again
own books, room, music, movies ...
i'm slipping out of the me of the last few decades,
that built a world out of these things
i'm peeping out
been here for years but never been to ccfc for new years
might go this year
funny place where i am
so much has changed
and so much still the same
its so easy to slip into sweet promises
you cannot afford to mean
gypsies and travellers
cant afford to pick up so much luggage
still amongst it all, you feel like your floating
travelling, desperately seeking
someone, something, somewhere which i can sense, but not grasp
like the half remembered word
tease ...

  4. Happy New Year, Prerona. Is home Calcutta?
    Your last post on leaving you was captivating. Have been coming back to it almost every day for the past week. The setting off in search of a dream is so resonating.
    Anyway, hope you have a great time at home. Wish I'd been able to go back to Cal for the hols.
    Best wishes

  5. Calcutta....city of my adolescence years and early twenties...though i have lived at half a dozen places in last 33 years...but whenever someone asks me...where do i belong to....answer is always Calcutta

    ....Wish you a Happy New Year

  6. "strange to be back amongst my own again
    own books, room, music, movies ..."

    .....what i found a little unusual is that when u said "amongst my own", u referred to books and rooms and music....but not people
