cowry shells


Another darling voice
Echoed in childhood corridors
Reverberating into subconscious

Remember that loot
In cowry shells
We played, fought over

Warding off cabin fevers
Trapped by relentless Monsoons
Silly beating imps into submissions

Mentally skate boarded
Zip zooming down cobwebby lanes, glitzy
Memories of an almost perfect childhood
