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 ||

There's No Freedom Like That of a Child's Imagination

கடலுக்கு உண்டு கற்பனைக்கு இல்லை கட்டுப்பாடு

Your camouflage befuddles my mind,
is it a throwback to childhood,
or a tantalizer to 'man'kind,
it's wildhood, mildhood or beguiled-hood?
- Max

There are bits of me
I camouflage because I
can't bear to see them.
I keep chained within
myself a bitter male-
volent avenger.
With slender chains of
poetry I bind the cur-
ses I could utter.
I must beware my-
self, I am my greatest friend,
I am my greatest foe.
