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 ||
- abhang of Tukaram Wolhoba Ambile of Dehu

Ecstasy

Ecstasy explodes
in the student's heart when the
teacher, at last, smiles.

Ecstasy explodes
in the young man's heart when his
love, at last, says yes.

Ecstasy explodes
win the farmer's heart when the
clouds, at last, burst forth.

Ecstasy explodes
in the child's heart when the
circus, at last, begins.

Ecstasy explodes
in the weaver's heart when the
worm, at last, pupates.

Ecstasy explodes
in the writer's heart when the
novel, at last, sells.

Ecstasy explodes
in the biker's heart when the
road, at last, clears.

Ecstasy explodes
in the Marxist's heart when the
Dow, at last, crashes.

Ecstasy explodes
in the monkey's heart when the
cats, at last, bicker.

Ecstasy explodes
in the sifter's heart when the
sieve, at last, yields gold.

Ecstasy explodes
in the listener's heart when the
bard, at last, shuts up.

And contributions from Max & Alaka:

Ecstasy explodes
in the cop's heart when the
offender, at last, talks cash.
(Max)

Ecstasy explodes
in the glutton's heart when the
tongue, at last, tastes honey.
(Alaka)

Agony spreads in
veins of a student with no
homework; teacher stares.
