Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||

Question & Answer

What would you rather be,
a pond, a stream or an ocean?
And why?

- Max Babi

Ponds stagnate,
ocean's indifferent,
moody & cruel.
I'd rather be a river
merrily singing,
creating life and
hopeful of dissolving
in the mighty ocean.

- Max Babi

A stream, undead, undying,
dreaming of the day of union
with the ocean,
like the yogi, the sufi
yearns for union with Him.

- my answer
