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 ||

Exchanges on birds

Conspiring to fill
the world with more bulbul song,
they hop, dash and dance.
- me

The iora dons
a glossy black mantle.
Monsoon approaches.
- Alaka

I love the steadily
increasding impatience
in a koels' call.
- Max

The courting shikras
chase each other.
Monsoon is near.
- Alaka

The pigeon couple
coo mournfully in their nest.
Monsoon is coming.
- me

The mournful pidgeon
coo excites gastric juices
of a hungry cat.
- Max
