Cattails [Free Verse]

In a patch of Deccan wetlands,
I see the cattails of my Hoosier youth.

Half a world away,
and nature grants me continuity
that culture can't provide.

I am transported to my youth
by a common landscape.

Indiana -- India,
names almost the same, 
but ever so different...

except the cattails.
