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 ||

Order and Chaos

Do we half mind
the splintering of dreams,
as the sundering,
often clinically,
of what we take to be
the background hum
of our soul's universe?

- me

Order emerges out of
and is absurdised back into the Chaos,
which is wrongly perceived as a Great Void.
Energies stabilise,
forms swirl into shape
as the kaleidoscope's roll slows down,
the myriad crystal edges whirl like dervishes,
axioms roll and tumble,
when eternity's coils do not constrict,
our comfort is from a calming canopy overhead.

- Balakrishnan S.
