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 ||

A chain on rain

Hungrily I pick
wild flowers,
lest the summery
dissolves in the
damp monsoon breeze.
- Lakshmi

Poets wait with more
agony for poems on
rain than rain itself.
- me

Just as there are more
people in love with, ah, love
than with a loved one.
- Max

Drowned in song refrains,
rescued by timely rains.
- Bala

I wake to falling
rain, tears pour from my eyes,
poems from my heart.
- me

Let it rain,
let it rain.
Your pain will
not go in vain.
Water will carry
it to the
river of life.
On its banks will
grow a forest
of love,
and sprigs of
- Nuzhat
